When Trick Dog opened this past January, its slick Pantone color guide-themed menu was talked about as much as the innovative cocktails. Now Serious Eats brings news that the Bon Vivants have shaken things up at their Mission bar with a whole new drink menu based on classic records. The result is a seriously cool-looking record album (check out the whole slideshow), and Serious Eats senior editor Maggie Hoffman reports that the cocktails -- most with "Pacific Rim, almost tropical flavors" according to bar manager Morgan Schick -- taste as good as their packaging looks.
Back when the Pantone menu debuted, we heard that Trick Dog patrons were pocketing them on a fairly regular basis. These seem way more appealing to steal, but they're also bulkier and harder to conceal. Let's hope these records stay on the shelves.
