The brigade at The Bristol, including Mixologist President Debbi Peek and front-of-house manager and partner John Ross, is like the cast of your favorite hit 70s television sitcom. They’re all colorful standouts in their own right, and you want to keep tuning in to see what delicious shenanigans they’ll get into this week. 2011 Rising Star Chef Chris Pandel is the cast’s loveable leader, serving soul-satisfying, Euro-Mediterranean dishes like Rabbit Liver and Kidney Lyonnaise. Pastry Chef Amanda Rockman does for desserts what Maryann did for the Professor (that is, melt her diners’ hearts with the pastry equivalent to big brown eyes—one bite of her pot de crème and you’d understand), and Mixologist Debbi Peek keeps drinkers and diners coming back for more with her MacGyver-like twists—of both lemon and technique.

Recommended Dishes:
  • Rabbit Liver and Kidney Lyonnaise, Poached Egg, and Frisée Lettuce
  • Caramel Pot de Crème, Cafe Dolce Sauce, and Meyer Lemon Confit
  • Smoked Sicilian Manhattan: Smoked Maker's Mark Bourbon, Averno Amaro and Stirrings Blood Orange Bitters
