Yesterday, Del Posto, launched a new bar menu that is bound to please every lover of classic and cutting edge cocktails. The restaurant is owned by celebrity chef Mario Batali, along with best-selling cookbook author and restaurateur Lidia Matticchio Bastianich, and her son Joe Bastianich, winner of the James Beard Foundation's "Outstanding Restaurateur" Award in 2008 (along with Batali).
So while Del Posto was recently awarded a coveted four star rating from the New York Times, it won't just be foodies who will be flocking to the Chelsea restaurant. Its cocktails are so delicious, that the bar at Del Posto is bound to be a destination of its own.
Bartender, Fabio Raffaelli, who hails from Milan, Italy, and Bar Manager, Matthew Silverstein, created the recipes that took the cocktail menu from seven to 27 different libations. The cocktails are not just delicious, but are also gorgeous to look at. Many of the cocktails are made with ultra premium rum, exotic liquers, fresh fruit juices and unique ingredients such as fresh rose water and Bitters that are imported from Germany.
