 Oh. Wow.
 House Fernet- Branca Cocktail.
 Earl’s Grey Garden.
 Mambo #69.
rhubarb bitters cuts the sweetness and makes this a scrumptiously balanced cocktail. The Mambo #69 is a customer favorite and is 701’s take on a classic margarita. Tequila, honey, pineapple shrub, and ginger beer are a few of the ingredients that add a simple twist on this classic drink. The jalapeño sugar and salt rim add the right amount of bite with each sip.
In addition to an impeccable
cocktail menu, the food is everything you’ve come to know and love from Taranto. The shareables are absolutely amazing, and we were lucky enough to sample most all of them. The Za’atar Whipped Feta Dip with house fried pita and panko artichokes
is sinfully rich and good. The Chickarones are fried chicken thighs tossed in a house orange ginger
sauce and compliment the Truffle Fries perfectly. The Crispy Shrimp is Taranto’s variation on a simple spring roll featuring tail-on shrimp fried
in a wonton wrapper. My personal favorite is the Citrus Shrimp Salad, which fuses Cajun-boiled shrimp with a bright citrus kick. My advice is to order them all.
Once you make it past the shareables, 701 offers the perfect selection of burgers and pizza. The Americano Burger is 701’s version of a classic smash burger. Pressed and grilled to order, the Americano gives all the diner feels and is topped with a secret, housemade burger sauce. If you are like me and pizza is your go- to, then you must try the Triple Pickle Pizza. I admit I was skeptical of this tart and salty creation, but everything
about it works. Set on a gluten-
free cauliflower crust, this dilly masterpiece is layered with ranch dressing, dill pickles, pickled okra, pickled jalapeños, and a four cheese blend. Crushed salt and vinegar potato chips are sprinkled on top, followed by a Louisiana hot sauce drizzle. It’s everything you didn’t know you wanted in a pizza.
Any evening at 701 Craft is going to be an absolute success. Taranto is incredibly proud of her dedicated team, as well as her loyal customer following. You can check out 701 Craft during lunch, but make it a point to grab a friend and go for an evening out. With an impeccable view, 701 Craft is a great place to unwind while the sun sets and reconnect with someone special.
