PLAN DATE: FRI / APR. 27
Savor classic cuisine at Bâtard, specializing in authentic European fare and drink. With more than 800 bottles of wine to choose from, this place will delight even the most discriminating connoisseurs. Delectable dishes such as duck breast paired with sweet treats like the manjari chocolate tart with espresso ice cream mean carefully curated flavors to delight your palates. Though classic, it’s not stuffy, so expect high-end tastes in a relaxed environment — an ideal way to start your Friday evening night on the town.
Spend the rest of the evening taking in some live music at The Django in the downstairs area of the luxurious Roxy Hotel. As you’re listening to the sounds of jazz, swing or blues, select from numerous high-end wines and spirits, or grab a crafty cocktail such as the Jitterbug made with Hennessy, chile vodka, green chartreuse, curry and lime cordial. As it gets late, sample some small plates… if you’ve saved room for dessert, you’ll want to try the almond flour chocolate cake with raspberries.
