Liquid Meals at Tabaq

I enjoy eating and drinking.  So when I discovered the Oliv martini ($12) at Tabaq, I was thrilled. This drink is a meal in itself. Take your classic martini, add olive jus, and colossal olives stuffed with fresh blue cheese. I died and am writing you from heaven.

It’s not the same as those cheese-stuffed olives you find at the store. Those are crap. This is divine.

There is also the Fiore ($12), with St. Germain, vodka and champagne. If you like something more classic, there are mojitos and caipirinhas. Find the right cocktail for you at Tabaq.
