Update: John Manwaring Trades Beatrice & Woodsley for Root Down

July 12 2010, 10:04 AM
Upon reading the July issue (Top of the Town), you may have noticed the sidebar "Above & Beyond" on page 87. It was here that we named five customer-service rock stars---a handful of people and places going the extra mile to make sure you're taken care of, every single time. One of those mentioned was John Manwaring, a fantastically talented mixologist at Beatrice & Woodsley. But in mid-June (when our July issue was at press), Manwaring left the Broadway restaurant and is now slinging drinks at Root Down alongside the venerable Anika Zappe. Even so, if you wander into Beatrice & Woodsley looking for Manwaring, the cocktails (mixed by other, very friendly bartenders) go down just as easily. Don't miss sipping the refreshing Bloodhound, with Ransom Old Tom Gin, sweet and dry vermouth, a dash of grapefruit juice, and muddled strawberries. Beatrice & Woodsley, 38 S. Broadway, 303-777-3505 Root Down, 1600 W. 33rd Ave., 303-993-4200
