This is an elegant, and spicy cocktail; of rye, ginger, and amaro. We cheer the continued fashion for complex adult flavours in modern cocktails! The Witty Comeback began as a vanity project — a “house cocktail” invented by Bon Appetit writer Dan Saltzstein. We’re pleased to say it worked out fabulously at the Normandie house.

This is one of our go-to comfort foods. The meat is rich and buttery, and is complemented by the sweetness of the shallots and the tanginess of the lemon-caper butter sauce. You’d normally serve it with buttered noodles (yes, this amounts to a lot of butter — deal with it). It’s the kind of home-cooking meets fine-dining Eliseo specialises in.
