I’ve also heard that Mr. Boudreau’s next project is, tentatively, a reinvention of the vodka bar.
Goodness, that’s a change of pace!
If you get a chance to stop in, perhaps ask him for something involving his famous Bruleed Cherries and Grey Goose?
edit – It has come to my attention that my deadpan delivery of the vodka bar rumor may have confused some folks. Allow me to point out that the idea for posting that little jest came from a certain mischievous Seattle bartender whose name rhymes with “furry”. This itinerant Seattle institution asked me to, “please,” stop by Bourbon and Branch and ask Mr. Boudreau about his intention to open, and I quote, “Seattle’s Ultimate Vodka Bar.” I certainly thought anyone who knows Mr. Boudreau’s work and professional reputation would suspect there was no way he would be involved in a project to “re-invent the vodka bar.” I apologize for any misunderstanding.
