After Stoddard's, I ventured over to No. 9 Park where Tyler Wang was behind the stick. For a starter, I had the Triumph of Pompei; Tyler explained that they had riffed off of Milk and Honey's Rome is Burning cocktail. I later failed to find a recipe for this inspirational drink and instead kept coming up with recipes for the one Scott Holliday created with the same name. Feel free to leave a comment with the recipe if you have it.
