DGS Delicatessen

So my Sunday started out not too great with running late and the brunch we arrived to being crazy packed. We tried to do the freak show STK brunch but we were a little too late. Sidenote, STK is sooo small here and I didn’t get that grown and sexy feel I got when I went to the one in NY. Maybe I should go another day and check it out.

So as we’re trying to figure out what we are going to do next, I realize I got a Gilt City deal for DGS a Delicatessen. We were walking distance from it and I was STARVING! We walked in and brunch is of course over and we are offered their limited lunch menu. It was not a lot to choose from, but everything everyone was eating around us looked amazing.

The name of this drink I believe was the Artemis Vertue which contains Hendrix gin, lime juice, cucumber, mint, sweet vermouth, agave nectar, and a splash of soda. Yum! Continue reading
