Established by top bartender, Perry Scott (of The Bowery fame) in a converted colonial cottage, The Lark is a tour de force. Whether it’s the food, the wine list or the highly inventive cocktails, you won’t be disappointed. It’s worth noting that they pride themselves on the breadth of their wine list and they are quite right to do so. Each bottle has been meticulously researched and a good deal of thought has gone into how it will complement the food. As for the cocktails, Perry has excelled himself. The cocktail menu is so designed to please any palette. His patented ‘Strummer’ cocktail is a staple of those in the know, a winning blend of vodka, lime juice, passion fruit, bitters and a slug of ginger beer. Nor does the decor take a back seat. The art deco furnishings are a delight, as are the larks which can be seen peaking out of various nooks and crannies. All in all, a triumph.
