What a way to start a morning: MY BARTENDER on the cover of the New York Times' Dining In, Dining Out section. Yes, it's true. Phil Ward of Death & Company (and late of both Pegu Club and Flatiron Lounge) is featured in today's Times talking about the miracle of bitters.
I'm hoping this doesn't mean that he's gonna be too famous and fancy to appreciate the little people (like moi). Still, as long as he's still shaking and stirring, I'm a happy camper - and a happy drinker.
