Better Sorts makes cocktails from, among other things, pasta water, black tea, and kale. That alone would make it worth checking out, but the fact that it also has a weird/creepy/fun David Lynch thing going on with couches, mid-century modern furniture, and pictures of anthropomorphic big game animals on the walls makes it even better. It also has a decent menu of bites like tiny little lobster rolls and fig tarts that's perfect for dates.
