authentic Mai Tais

In what bars beside Trader Vic's can I find an authentic mai tai? By authentic, I mean Trader Vic's style - no pineapple juice, no grenadine, no bacardi. Just aged rum, lime, curacao, orgeat, and rock candy syrup.

Tiki Ti, which is a fine establishment with many fantastic drinks by its own right, does not make it like the Trader. I knew that the now-defunct Norman's made a proper one, but where else?
