Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Beautifully illustrated, beautifully designed, and beautifully crafted — just like its namesake — this is the ultimate bar book by NYC's most meticulous bartender.

To say that PDT is a unique bar is an understatement. It recalls the era of hidden Prohibition speakeasies: to gain access, you walk into a raucous hot dog stand, step into a phone booth, and get permission to enter the serene cocktail lounge. Now, Jim Meehan, PDT's innovative operator and mixmaster, is revolutionizing bar books, too, offering all 304 cocktail recipes available at PDT plus behind-the-scenes secrets. From his bar design, tools, and equipment to his techniques, food, and spirits, it's all here, stunningly illustrated by Chris Gall.

Before opening PDT, he worked in major New York restaurants and bars, including Five Points, Gramercy Tavern, and The Pegu Club. He is a contributing editor of Food and Wine magazine's annual cocktail book, Mr. Boston's Bartender Guide, and Sommelier Journal. Meehan has been recognized as a rising star mixologist by Star Chefs Online Culinary Magazine, Cheers Magazine and as the 2009 American Bartender of the Year at Tales of the Cocktail. He lives in New York City's East Village.

Chris Gall has created designs for clients that include Ford, Nike, Pepsi, Shell Oil, Sony, McDonald's, and U.S. Steel. His work has been showcased in virtually every major publication in America, including Time, Newsweek, Forbes, People and the New York Times. Millions of New Yorkers will recognize Chris's “Flying Fish,” displayed by the MTA for over a year in countless underground subway cars. He has received over 50 major awards from the likes of the Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts Magazine, The New York Art Directors Club, and Print Magazine. Gall has authored and illustrated four children's books, including America the Beautiful, Dear Fish, There's Nothing To Do On Mars, and Dinotrux, which was a 2009 Publishers Weekly Best Children's Book. He lives in Tucson, Arizona.
