From a press release:

“Javier Candon’s Joselito Casa de Comidas is an intimate 70 seat eatery reminiscent of the timeless establishments found throughout Spain at the turn of the century.

It is an homage to Javier’s late father, Jose, who enjoyed long, leisurely family meals at restaurants that had an “old school” feel and a warm, casual, and inviting ambiance. “Joselito” was Jose’s childhood nickname, as well as the name of one of his favorite bullfighters and a popular child actor in the 50s in Spain.

Our menu features traditional family recipes from Spain, but prepared with the modern techniques of today. Most all dishes on the menu are offered in three sizes—tapa (equivalent to an appetizer size), media ración (entree) and ración (family style portion)—so that guests can craft their own culinary journey.

David Sierra will helm Joselito’s kitchen. He worked with Javier as sous chef at SER, and prior to that he was at Fiola Mare and Taberna del Alabardero. His complete bio is below. (more…)

From a press release:

Stanton & Greene is taking inspiration from its location in the heart of Capitol Hill and relaunching itself as a craft cocktail bar that celebrates the history, heritage and flavors of these United States. The centerpiece of this rebranding is a new cocktail menu that consists of two historical recipes and ten original cocktails each directly inspired by a different amendment in the Bill of Rights (see guide for details) .

Complete Cocktail Menu (PDF)

The two historical cocktails are Benjamin Franklin’s Clarified Milk Punch, recorded in a 1762 letter to James Bowdoin, and Martha Washington’s Cherry Bounce, a favorite of George Washington’s. A taste of these drinks is literally a sip of history. The list of original Constitutional Cocktails embraces the history of American drinking as informed by mixologist Remy Canario’s extensive background reading (see bibliography) and research at the Library of Congress, emphasizes ingredients native to North America (e.g. Concord grapes and black walnuts), and evokes flavor profiles familiar to all Americans (e.g. apple pie and peanut butter & jelly). The result is a menu that is highly accessible, but also full of novel flavor combinations and fresh ideas including: craft versions of two of the most humble of drink orders, rum & coke and vodka & red bull, the use of stickers as a medium to incorporate the scent of essential oils into a cocktail; ingredients with medicinal properties; and a 100% local cocktail.
