As a follow-up to my recent item that a good cocktail is hard to find in Manhattan, let me proclaim that competent bartenders can be found at Eleven Madison Park, Danny Meyer's elegant place in the Met Life building.
My waitress didn't even need to check behind the bar: she know they had rye, Herbsaint and Peychaud's bitters, and that the bartender had been schooled in how to make a Sazerac. The drink is listed under their "classic cocktails" list. By my mind, if they know how to make a Sazerac, they can make them all.
Sazerac fans, take note.
