Frozen Daiquiris and Global Eats
Booty's is the kind of neighborhood joint you want in your neighborhood. With its concrete floors, reclaimed wood bar, and pressed tin ceilings, it's cool without trying too hard and I want everything on the street food-inspired menu. I'm tempted by the Cuban rice and beans with roast pork, avocado, and chimichurri, but maybe I should see how the banh mi po' boy rates? In the end, I decide on the Gaijin bowl, a combination of Japanese noodles, plus steak, chicken, pork, and poached egg in a rich, salty broth. It's past noon, which means a cocktail is in order, and I'm persuaded by my waitress to try the Bywater Bomber. The house daquiri is a nuanced blend of pineapple, orange, and lime juice, plus rose water, Booty's bitters, and Old New Orleans Rum—in other words: boozy, frozen, fruity perfection.
