GREENWICH, Conn. -- The new cocktail list at Bistro V on Greenwich Avenue comes infused with French culture and the art of mixology.
Eight handcrafted drinks, ranging from $12 to $16 in price, explore quality with fine ingredients and French style, according to the staff. Recipes were created by General Manager Manaf Qweider in collaboration with the restaurant's resident bartender, Anthony Pessus.
