Drink: A Plea to Barbara Lynch

I love Drink. The atmosphere, the care taken with the cocktails, the knowledgeable and outstanding staff... the experience of enjoying a well-made beverage in a comfortable setting that excludes the "what do you mean you don't have red bull?!" crowd is great.

My complaint: the food. We get it. The place emphasizes the drinks and is not about having a meal. However, if you are going to bother to serve "snacks" at all, please make them better than the present offerings. Three sad little skewers of limp, over-salted scallops... no thanks. The croquettes... ugh. A platter of beets (with limp, withered greens still attached) and mushy carrots next to a bowl of congealed butter... double ugh. I could go on.

How about something so simple it is laughable: a bowl of spiced nuts? Perhaps hummus is too ubiquitous for you - understandable. How about Russian seeniye instead? I know other threads have touched on this but I thought it worthy to put it out here on its own.
