Several months back, barman Brent Butler left his post at Blackbird to take over as bar manager at seven-month-old West of Pecos (550 Valencia). He made a few tweaks to the menu, but now he unveils his complete new menu for winter, including a few original Western-themed creations like the Cruzita (pisco, Amontillado sherry, Aperol, cardamom), and the Black Rose (anejo tequila, apple shrub, Fernet Vallet, and honey — this one was created by bartender Matthew Grippo). See the full deal below.
