Herb & Bitter is a bar and restaurant where anyone can enjoy great, unique cocktails and outstanding food without all the pretension.

Our bar program is progressive and centered around amari, herbal liqueurs, fresh herbs, and the cornucopia of cocktails we can create using those ingredients. We strive to push the boundary of conventional drinking, while ensuring that our cocktails remain familiar and approachable. In addition to this, we have a dozen wines by the glass, and an 18 beer draft list that changes frequently. We have a little something for everyone.

The food at Herb & Bitter is meant to be shared with friends. Our food menu is diverse and eclectic, with a nod to the small plates popular in Spanish cuisine. We also incorporate other Mediterranean cuisines and flavors of the world into our dishes, with as many local, and sustainably produced ingredients as possible.

For the cold of winter...
Peach Leaves:
Rosé infused with peach leaves, brandy of Chenin Blanc, verjus of Pinot Noir, Amaro Montenegro, lemon oleo-saccharum, and Byrrh.
Served hot!

The infusion of peach leaves in rosé is a tradition coming from southern France. Called "vin de pêche", the wine develops flavors of orchard fruits, vanilla, and amaretto. We've taken that as inspiration, given it the Herb & Bitter treatment, and then turned it into a winter warmer.

Happy New Year, everybody.
Here's to high hopes and bluer skies in 2017. #herbandbitter

I'm always in awe at the magic of milk washing.

It's a preservation technique that goes back to the early 1700s in the Caribbean. Oddly enough, as a way to preserve punch. Milk is added to an acidic liquid (in this case a tea infused rum with citric acid), the milk curdles, and the curds are strained away. With enough filtering, you're left with a crystal clear, absolutely gorgeous liquid that's been mellowed and softened by the milk.

Shaken in a cocktail, it's pure velvet.

[01/01/17]   Herb & Bitter is closed today for our staff appreciation party.

Sorry, folks! We'll see you tomorrow.

Tonight we say goodbye to 2016, and hello to the hope of greener pastures in 2017.

Our celebration is simple: you bring the friends, you bring the party, and we'll provide the food, cocktails, funky music, and bubbles 'til the lights come on at 2 AM.

See you tonight!

We got some new... I mean, old bottles in!

Some are familiar faces, while others are mysterious and untraceable. These, and many of the antique amari we have at Herb & Bitter, were only available regionally, or have long since stopped production.

If you'd like a taste of history, you know where to find us.

I can't help but chuckle at the tragicomedy that is opening a box of Amaro Montenegro.
