The Mink family’s Center City seafood house has quietly positioned itself as one of the steadiest cocktail bars in the city. The bartenders are fast and friendly, the gin collection is formidable and the drinks touch on both classics (Philly’s own Clover Club) and nouveau favorites (the Kentucky Maid, via Milk & Honey).
