From a press release:

“Scorpion bowls, Pina Coladas and Banana Daiquiris cement their position as the undisputed drinks of summer as doi moi’s cocktail list takes a decidedly Tiki turn for the season. Over the next two weeks, doi moi Bar Director Adam is rolling out his new cocktail menu at the Southeast Asian restaurant, which pays homage to summer’s sought-after flavors and Bernbach’s personal favorites.

“I’ve long maintained that the Pina Colada is the most underrated of cocktails,” says Bernbach, who also heads the bar programs at 2 birds 1 stone, Estadio and Proof. “Like most Tiki drinks, it is a study in complex flavors and one that I’ve had a lot of fun exploring for this list. The new menu works very well with the restaurant’s spicy cuisine and provides the perfect thirst-quenchers for our unfailingly intense summer temperatures.”

In addition to the aforementioned Pina Colada, which is served in a coconut mug, Bernbach’s new menu at doi moi will include popular Tiki classics such as the Mai Tai and Suffering Bastard. Bernbach will also explore under-the-radar drinks, such the sherry and bourbon-forward Bizzy Izzy and crafts inventive originals like the Straw Hat #2, a combination of Pisco, Scotch whisky, Cocchi Americano and lime bitters. Prices range from $12-$14, with the bowls priced at $35. The complete cocktail menu is detailed below.

    $14 for a cocktail?! I think Doi Moi should check its privilege.

      I love 2 Birds 1 Stone downstairs, and think the cocktails are amazing – but I don’t go that frequently… purely because of the price.

      • I liked Doi Moi significantly better than 2 Birds, 1 Stone. Even the drinks upstairs were better.

        • Completely agree. I liked Doi Moi so much better than I was expecting to. 2 Birds 1 Stone was a huge disappointment–not to mention an $80 for 4 small drinks disappointment.

    I’ve been wanting to try this place – I’ve heard from friends that it’s good. However, one little thing that gets me about it – it’s got such great windows and visibility yet all day long it sits with tables upside down and chairs on top of them. I can’t help but to think that they lose some marketing potential not leaving the place all set up and spruced up during the day when people are passing by – am I the only one who has noticed this? Especially since, at least from the street, it has a nice design aesthetic that seems to be wasted.
