“For our summer cocktails, we are showcasing the wonderful world of herbs utilized in spirits and garnishes,” said Franceso Lafranconi, who conceived the seasonal menu and is vice president of beverage and hospitality culture, Carver Road Hospitality, which owns and operates Carversteak. “These recipes lead to unforgettable olfactory memories — from the likes of zesty citrus lemon verbena and lemon balm to sweeter basil and woodsy rosemary — and perfectly refreshing combinations to cool off in the summer heat.”


Carversteak, open Sunday–Thursday, 5–10 p.m., offers a 3,500-square-foot terrace with lounge gardens, dining areas and the Garden Bar. Reservations recommended.

If you’ve tried to keep your mind clear and your hands busy with things like adult coloring books, and you’ve found that still doesn’t do much for you (all that pressure to stay inside the lines!), you might want to try the Buddha Board.
