Since 2008, Frankie Solarik has been rattling the cocktail scene with his hyper-modernist elixirs, like his $50 vanilla-and-hickory-smoked manhattan (served still smoking). At Barchef, drinks are made with ingredients like essence of antique leather, cacao soil and maraschino gel. Don’t be surprised if your drink comes served with a spoon—some of them are meant to be eaten.
