But that being said, this isn't a shot and a beer sort of bar. Not in the least! If you are going to take the time to go to Death & Co, do yourself a favor and stay away from the beer and the wine, and go for a cocktail. The bartenders are not just drink pourers, they are mixologists, and some of them are genius!
For the small plates menu, there are about 15 plates (including 3 desserts) to choose from. Some of the winners include the Truffled mac and Cheese, served on 8 individual spoons, portioned into the perfect sized bites.
Service is also great, and the bartenders are cool. The guy we had seemed to have a lot of liquor knowledge, and shared a story about Absinthe with us and the history of absinthe. Interesting...from what everyone says however, order the "Saz Wha?" from Brian at the bar. I will have to try this next time!
In short, if you are looking for a hip place to bring some friends to, or have some friends visiting from out of town, this is a good choice! Check it out now, and remember who sent ya while this place is still on the cool list! We'll be back for sure in the future. Cheers!
