Sometime last year I accidentally came across the web site for this restaurant and was immediately taken with the stunning photographs of the place. I knew that I absolutely wanted us to go there but somehow, a year passed, life got busy and we never quite found the opportunity. This past weekend, however, Brian and I were celebrating our 5th anniversary and we did so with a reservation, at long last, for dinner at Harvest.
Brian is a fan of bourbon drinks and a cocktail called Bite the Bullet appealed to him. It's a mixture of Bulleit bourbon, St. Germain, mint, lemon and blood orange bitters. What he's not a fan of, though, is watered down drinks and so he asked for the drink to be made without being shaken over ice and with the understanding that it would be a smaller drink. But that began an unpleasant volley between us and the bartender.
