It’s got all the marks of a speakeasy: the ambiguous sign, an entrance through the back door of a pie shop, and that feeling
that you’ve just stumbled into something top secret. But Green Russell is more like fine dining—for cocktails, with mixologists
who are more like chefs (ask for the Bartender’s Choice for a surprise). And while it’s dark, moody, and denlike, the joint
still manages to grow its own mint, lavender, and rosemary in a back room turned greenhouse. We recommend reservations—ordering
drinks requires a seat, plus you don’t want to miss the American small plates.
