The Fairfax at Embassy Row Presents The SALLY Cocktail Tasting

PIXofDC – April 8th, 2019

On Monday April 8, the Fairfax at Embassy Row hotel in Dupont Circle hosted a cocktail tasting at their American fusion restaurant, The SALLY. The evening featured Pyramid Hotel Group’s Director of New Restaurant Concepts Davide Crusoe, creator of The SALLY cocktail menu, who saluted D.C.’s spring commencement with refreshing beverages and fun, poetic toasts. Invited guests enjoyed cocktails ranging from The Spicy Hemmingway: featuring gin, chile pepper, lime and grapefruit to The Upper East Side Meets Tokyo, a wasabi dusted old fashioned.

Executive Chef Ricardo Planas served signature bites including the roasted beet salad with fennel, goat cheese and pistachios and charred orange seared scallops. The SALLY is the Fairfax’s upscale dining concept introduced during the hotel’s substantial renovation of their ground floor common spaces, which was unveiled in December. Rockwell Group has reimagined the hotel’s ground floor reception, lobby, and dining venues with a “classic elegance meets modern” aesthetic offering a sophisticated multi-functional design. DC locals and out of town visitors can also enjoy breakfast pastries and Swings coffee in the café-style Market or unwind afterhours with ping pong and pool tables in The Nook. The SALLY begins dinner service every night at 5 p.m. Photos by Jared Ringenberg for Pix of DC
