Lure Fishbar, the acclaimed seafood restaurant located inside Loews Hotel, has been celebrated for its progressive cocktail program as well as its unbeatable menu of contemporary, seafood-centric fare. Now, with newly-appointed Bar Manager Chris Resnick at the helm, the restaurant has unveiled a rejuvenated cocktail menu overflowing with refreshing temptations, sure to reel in new customers and loyal fans. Crafted for the holiday season, the new menu additions sport bold spices and unique flavor combinations that will surely lure imbibers in for a second (or third) round.
The eclectic menu includes an assortment of nautical-themed cocktails including the Anne Bonny, an adventurous play on a spicy margarita and ode to the Irish lady-pirate made with Milagro Silver tequila, Habanero pepper, pineapple, Dolin Genepy and fresh lime for the perfect balance of sweet and spiciness. The River City Ransom, named after the classic arcade game, is comprised of Rittenhouse Rye, vanilla, allspice, fresh lemon, and Whiskey Barrel Bitters; it offers a multitude of seasonally-inspired, layered flavors from the fruity bitterness of the Rye to the notable presence of vanilla and allspice. The Mystery Plane highlights a sweeter profile but packs a punch – made with Plantation Pineapple Rum, Averna, Aperol, Blanc Vermouth and fresh lemon, this inventive cocktail is an Italian twist on the classic “El Presidente” daiquiri.
