Botanica

Owner Daniel Preston brought in Michelin-starred chef Saul Bolton to overhaul the food and drink programs at Botanica, a lovely Red Hook drinkery, which reopened last night. Bolton honors Preston's Italian and Dominican roots with refined small plates, such as cured Maine sardines with dandelion greens, and roasted pork over rice and beans. Barkeep Dan Carlson hews to the Mediterranean-Caribbean ethos as well with the cocktail menu, including drinks like the Dune Grass (white rum, orange liqueur, lime juice, fleur de sel, cucumber, shiso and lemongrass) and the Amaro Cobbler (Amaro Nonino, sherry, baking-spice bitters, blackberries and mint). Bolton and Carlton also source ingredients from Preston's distillery and chocolate factory, Cacao Prieto, next door. Check out the full menus below. 220 Conover St at Coffey St (347-225-0148)
