Willamette Week’s 2009 restaurant guide also came out today, with Carlyle making the list of “Five Restaurants with Great Bars.” The drinks get a mention in the main review too:
Both the wine and cocktails are worthy of the food (except for maybe the “Obligatory Pink Vodka Drink” — see? They have a sense of humor, too.)
Purists will be glad to know the OPVD didn’t make the cut on our new, trimmer cocktail menu. We’re super serious now.
Restaurant of the Year went to Beaker and Flask. It’s a totally deserved honor and it couldn’t have gone to a nicer bunch of people. Congrats, guys!
