Well, it’s (almost) official!
For those of you that haven’t heard, I am now at a bar called Tini Bigs. Over the last month or so, I’ve been working at revamping the cocktail program, and as of today the new list is out. We’ve ordered new glassware, new ingredients, new ice (for our whiskies and the Chocolat Cochon) and am now just waiting on a few minor things to make the transformation complete. What else is to come? New web site, new menu covers, a Captain’s List, new plate ware, cutlery and some minor cosmetic changes (with major effect) over the next few months. For those of you that enjoyed the old Tini Bigs “martinis”, we’ll still be able to do most of them, and we have preserved a selection of those for the list as well.
If you haven’t been to Tini Bigs in a while (and from those that I’ve asked, that’s a lot of you) please come on by and check us out. I’ll be there on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, (with the exception of my trip to Prague and New York in the beginning of November) and am excited to make you a proper cocktail while behind a bar that was built in 1909.
