Wide and inviting bar area
Winter brings with it many pleasures--the spirit of the holidays, family time, New Year’s resolutions, new beginnings, and, of course, snow. This season, so far, lots and lots of snow. Apart from winter sports such as snowboarding and skiing, winter is usually best enjoyed from the inside looking out, i.e. indoors. Preferably, with a warm hearty meal and a full glass (or two) of wine or cocktail within a hand’s reach.
Enter the universal soul-pleaser, the bar. Be it a late night bite, cocktail hour with friends, girls’ night out, or just an occasional after-work drop-in, there’s just something about going to the bar that appeals to us all. Some dim light, good music and conversation over savory bites of food, plus your favorite libation expertly prepared by a knowledgeable bartender, will make the night.
This winter we can add 51 Lincoln’s new bar menu to the libation options available to us west of the city. Mixologist extraordinaire and bar chef, Ben Brenner, will mix up your favorite cocktail, pour you some of his sangria, or any of more then eleven wines by the glass, and serve some delicious bites to match it all.
The restaurant has added a new bar menu and some new cocktails to long-time favorites, such as the Scarlet Martini or the classic Vesper (James Bond’s original drink for those Bond fans out there). Some of the new bar bites include coconut-encrusted shrimp, picked deviled eggs, a daily changing slider served on freshly made house bread.
All the regular dinner and dessert menu items, such as the house-made charcuterie plate (which is fantastic), and famous Rigatoni Bolognese (classic winter dish) are also available at the bar.
The place fills up fast, especially on weekends, so get there early and prepare your taste buds.
