Spitz in Little Tokyo Raises The Bar With New Booze

New, 6 comments

Robert Wicklund, owner of Spitz in Little Tokyo and Eagle Rock, drops us a note to say that he added a full bar to the Little Tokyo location of his Middle Eastern hang about a week and a half ago. The cocktail list was designed by mixologist Kathy Casey out of Seattle and focuses on staples like a Bloody Mary and a Manhattan using fresh ingredients. In the past only sangria and craft beers were avail. In addition to the new libations, the full Sptiz menu is served at the bar.

As for the choice to expand alcoholic offerings, Wicklund says "The bar scene down here is really taking off and we want to join the party." All cocktail cost under $10, check out the list below.
