Best Brooklyn Cocktails - 2013
James owners Deborah Williamson and Bryan Calvert live above their Prospect Heights restaurant, and the fresh herbs they grow in their rooftop garden often show up on their menus. They also make their own bitters, an endeavor that launched a peripheral company, Cecil & Merl. The ever-evolving cocktail menu incorporates these advantages in simple, elegant, and balanced offerings. Try, for example, the Goldilocks Punch, which is made with chamomile rum, honey, lemon, and grapefruit bitters.
