One of the greatest bars in town did Boston proud down in NOLA at Tales of the Cocktail. The prestigious Bare Knuckle Bar Fight featured 7 invited bars and their respective bartending teams from around the country. Go figure, the "People's Choice" winner? Citizen Public House and Oyster Bar on Boylston Street behind Fenway, and what a team it is. Led by the talented, funny, charming, intelligent, beautiful (let's see if I can get some more adjectives in here): Joy Richard and Sabrina Kershaw. By the way, as if this wasn't impressive enough, Sabrina was also voted "Top 10 mixologists to watch." Chad Arnholt of Trick Dog fame in San Francisco (and former employee) made the trek to assist too, plus other local all-stars, Sean Frederick, John Nugent, Pam Maguire, David Delaney, Jr. and Nick Korn. In fact, Citizen is so good that one of my favorite bartenders in town, Jason Cool, stayed back to mind the fort- now that's dedication. Dream Team.
My message here today is short and sweet- get over and see these folks, it's one of the best spots in America, right in our back yard.
