It's Friday and it's going to be 5pm soon!
Ideally looking for a great place that has innovated classic cocktails, ala, Bourbon & Branch, or at the very least pour a fantastic classic, like at the Ritz. I recognize that San Jose and the South Bay aren't as innovate in both food & cocktails...but I'm a hope springs eternal type of gal.
When I'm carving a well made cocktail, I generally head to The Grill at the Fairmont, but I'm looking for a change....anyone know of a good bartender hiding? Someplace I haven't run into already?
