Paris Cocktails II: Le Mary Celeste

Our quest to cover the Paris cocktail scene continues with a visit to Le Mary Celeste.


Tiara is not impressed by the fancy cursive neon

We started with Mina and California Dreaming.

Mina (left) was a bourbon, amaro, lemon, sherry, and strawberry combo. We think the amaro, Braulio (?), kind of overpowered this one. The nose was lovely strawberry, but the palate was pure menthol. Kind of a shame, because I think it’s a smart drink otherwise.

California Dreaming was sherry, house orgeat, citrus, and apricot pure. It was a touch sweet; the net effect was kind of like drinking marzipan. But a much better drink overall.

We also tried an order of the house deviled eggs, which was a clever take with some asian influences. Soy eggs, puffed rice, pickled onions, and sesame oil. A touch heavy on the sesame, but a solid and interesting dish. Pardon the dark room photography; we’re pushing the limits of our iphones.
