Southwark’s owners source their ingredients from local farmers, co-ops, and often even from their own gardens, supporting the sustainable Slow Food movement. Small plates include artisan cheeses and house-made sausage, while locally caught quail and trout can be found on the entrée menu. At the mirrored, mahogany bar, mixologists serve traditional, muddled concoctions like the Old Fashioned, Gin Fizz and the Corpse Reviver, which also contains Absinthe. The signature drink, named after the restaurant, is mixed with Willet single barrel rye, Meletti amaro and “Ben Franklin Madeira,” paying homage to the neighborhood’s founding father.

Insider Tip:

When Southwark’s barkeeps say “a classic is a classic,” they mean it. Don’t look for fancy infusions and tinctures here; the staff excels at the old-school drinks–Manhattans, Rob Roys, Gimlets–and they pour liberally.
