The Drink: Speaking of buzz, "bar chef" Clint Spotleson mixes up some great drink options during the Outspoken Hour. Along with $5 glasses of red and white wine, you can try out four Virtú signature cocktails, which are all only $6. The Virtu Starter Kit is a citrus-y take on a martini base with Plymouth gin and vermouth stirred together on the rocks with grapefruit bitters and lemon soda. For whiskey fans, the absinthe-laden sazerac is a sweet and strong drink served up with a zest to garnish.
The Conclusion: Great food, delicious drinks, knowledgeable service, and a quiet, relaxing, and comfortable atmosphere -- you really can't ask for more than that out of a happy hour. With very reasonable pricing, it's easy to get caught up and order way more than you can even eat, so bring a friend. While we did have a couple very minor issues with the dishes, overall everything was pretty darn near perfect.
