Beloved former P.J. Clarke's bartender Doug Quinn isn't ready to divulge more details about his in-the-works saloon, but those aching for Quinn's bar-side manner and expert drinks can sate themselves Monday at Chris Mitchell's Friends With Benefits cocktail club at Fatta Cuckoo. The bartender will mix an El Buho Mezcal Mule with ginger and cucumber, a Blood and Sand riff with the same spirit, a drink called Lucifer's Whiskers, made with Greenhook Ginsmiths, and, in keeping with trends, one carbonated option: A Virgin No More, made with black-cherry-infused Wódka vodka. E-mail friendsWBseries@gmail.com to reserve 6 p.m. ($35) or 9 p.m. ($50) seatings. [Earlier, Related]
