Who’s Behind the Illegal Brandy Ring?

Sip the city's top secret.

Here at Grub, people tell us lots of secrets. And then we totally betray them and leak everything to you. This time, however, we have to zip it, because we like the place, and for purely selfish reasons don’t want their barkeep in restaurant-jail. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t solve the mystery on your own … Which brilliant, eccentric beverage director of a major downtown restaurant is distilling his own brandy, an illegal hooch that is amazingly smooth and exquisite? You have to be big there to get a taste.

Hint: The restaurant is prone to harmless secrets.
