The perfect cure for that mid-week slump you're experiencing? A trip to the hotly-anticipated new boutique hotel Catahoula, where former Felipe's tiki & pisco mastermind/bar director Nathan Dalton is now serving up a slew of pisco drinks, classic cocktails and 'elaborate concoctions,' Ian McNulty reports.
The hotspot also boasts an espresso bar and eatery that serves 'beautifully wrought' Peruvian eats including salads, ceviche, tiradito (crudo), sandwiches, a pisco-infused dulce de leche and more— Carmo's Dana Honn consulted on the menu with Catahoula's chef Billy Lacrosse.
The star of the show here is Dalton's wild 'experience' drink menu though. Take for instance The Drunk Tank, a cocktail that McNulty describes as a "platter of alcohol rendered in the form of slush, popsicles, gummy candy and cotton candy." Fear the candy not, imbibers. Most of the drinks on this menu actually venture toward intriguing taste-distorting fruits and 'nerve-bending' Amazonian flowers at play.
A rooftop tiki bar is also expected to open this summer. For now, find the pisco, espresso and Peruvian eats downstairs with courtyard dining available. Open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with bar service until midnight.
