It’s not just a breakfast nook! Walk into Town Talk and be greeted with a happy yell from the back bar. It’s kitschy, with brushed aluminum and a deco flair that you would not expect to hold masterful recipes and house made ingredients. But that’s what you will find. I recommend the Jackson Pollock with it’s drips and swirls of basil oil, or the Grassy Knoll—a cocktail with a refreshing herbal slant. House-made mixers are the rule rather than the exception here, and the bartenders have won awards at national competitions. One even moved on to found Bittercube Bitters. At Town Talk, you get great cocktails without feeling drippingly fancy. It’s fun and delicious and the food is very tasty (duck bombs anyone?). Don’t forget an Adult Malt for dessert.
