Seeking: a grown up happy hour happily devoid of frat boys and full of quality food and hand crafted cocktails. The Answer: Siena Tavern’s new happy hour.
This new powerhouse of a new restaurant has already proven itself to be the spot for those who want a top notch italian dinner with inventive and classic dishes by executive chef Fabio Viviani. Hubby and I visited last week to see what all the fuss was about. The cocktails are curated by the crew at the renowned Broken Shaker Bar. Moscow Mule, house sangria and take on a Limoncello called…Cocello was delicious. What are you washing down with these cocktails ? How about a new East Coast vs West Coast feud ? OF OYSTERS ! Siena Tavern has a plethora of bi coastal oyster choices..they vary depending on the time of year but be assured they are as fresh as oysters can be. Time to get your food and drink on.
Available daily ( Saturday and Sunday included) between 6 to 8 p.m. Appetizers like Hamachi and Tuna Crudo for $7. Frito Misto,Salami or cheese boards are also listed. We had the Prosciutto Pear pizza for $9. Our waiter went into detail to explain how they had to revamp their dough recipe from what they use in their Chicago restaurant. Miami humidity is no friend of dough. Having managed a famous pizzeria in Baltimore, Md , I judge pizza by it’s dough. Siena Tavern gets an A+. Combine that with the $2 oysters, $7 house cocktails, glass of wine of the day and drafts for $4 and you have a really happy happy hour.
We finished our happy hour with a flight of gelato and of course their infamous Bombolini donut like pastry.
Happy hour can be enjoyed at or around the bar and also on their beautiful terrace.
Happiness is Daily Happy Hour.
