Elyssa, hope you are on! Wanted to ask you, or anyone else familiar with Butterfield 9, about the bar? Is it a separate space from the dining room? Do they have good drinks & wine by the glass? Is it slammed on friday at happy hour? i think we are eating there friday night and am trying to decide whether to go there for drinks first or go over to the Hay Adams and then walk or cab over to B. 9 for dinner.
Also, have you had the dessert sampler? What's on it...and is it worth saving room for??
