The liquid counterpart to chef Grant Achatz’s Next, Aviary exhibits a similar dedication to innovation and theater. The not-quite bar (there is no “bar” to speak of, just a kitchen with prep stations) adopts a molecular slant, delivering cocktails in unexpected forms and flavors—an Old-Fashioned served inside of an ice cube, a drink that tastes like buttered popcorn—served in a tasting menu format. This may not be anything like your average bar, and that’s exactly the point. After drinking at Aviary there’s absolutely no way you’ll look at a cocktail the same way again.
