To all you nightcrawlers, I have a follow up to my recent post about The Inn LW12's late night Tuck Menu ("Tucked Inn" - Monday, March 19th) which serves until close to 4 A.M. In case you missed it, the New York Times featured the restaurant's signature cocktail, the Maple Leaf, in the Shaken and Stirred column in today's Sunday Styles ("Part Tux, Part Pajamas" - Sunday, April 1st).
Jonathan Miles writes, "The Maple Leaf is more refreshing than its autumnal, smoky-sweet ingredients might suggest. The taste evokes a crisp spring morning in Canada, befitting the InnLW12’s Canadian motif."
So, whether you are winding down or waking up....raise your glass to the Great White North.
