David Myers' Comme Ca, which already had a tightly-edited menu of excellent drinks, is enlarging its cocktail menu with about two dozen tantalizing additions. Mixologist Joel Black seems to be in overdrive, with a gin-heavy list of unusual cocktails and revived classics like the Aviation. Reading about drinks like the seasonal Toasted Marshmallow Punch with a graham cracker rim, or the El Matador with tequila, lemon juice, ginger and violet liqueur are making me very thirsty indeed.
