The Hake
Beverage Curator at The Hake


Beverage curator Joan Villanueva returns with a cocktail menu categorized by base spirits, including the agave-spotlighting Niama with Tequila Cabeza, Cynar, Dolin Rouge, Gran Marnier, Aperol and a Fernet wash and the vodka-based Emporer's Tea with Zubrowka Bison Grass Vodka, chrysanthemum tea syrup, lemon and apple juice at The Hake in La Jolla.

There's also an expanded wine program, with both Old and New Word varietals and 25 options by the glass; a retail component allows bottles to also be purchased and taken home. After dinner, dinners can choose to cap of their meal with a digestivo poured from a mobile tableside cart.
