Rush Street's Cocktail Menu: Manhattans, Smokey Martinis and Berry Brambles, Oh My!
We think we found our new favorite Manhattan cocktail: It's the Blood Orange Bitters Manhattan at the new Culver City restaurant/bar, Rush Street. Most versions of this drinking man's cocktail come on kick-ass strong but here at one of the busiest bar in the heart of Screenland, this one is tempered with the blood orange bitters making it lighter and dangerously drinkable.
Our new favorite drink is just one of the many yummy libations on Rush Street's sophisticated cocktail menu. Here, you'll find not the uber-sweet frou-frou drinks that populate most hotel and martini bars, but rather a wonderful ode to the classics. The bartenders at Rush Street, headed by Tom Roe (former bar manager of Ford's Filling Station across the street), got together one afternoon for a crazy tasting session and created this list of 16 (each $14).
