Not only does Aquitaine have a new Chef de Cuisine in Matt Gaudet, but also a brand new cocktail and beer list, courtesy of GM Alexis Gelburd-Kimler and Matt Coughlin, who heads up the restaurant’s bar. As is the style of the times, the cocktails are classic (think Pegu Club and Bee’s Knees), with prices topping out at $12. The new beers focus on French and Belgian styles. Aquitaine’s bar has always been visually appealing — jumping on the craft cocktail train seems like a good way to make it alcoholically enticing as well.
