Canon Restaurant Review

: Savor bites of petite pork buns in the stylish dining room, or spoon chartreuse liqueur ice cream from a Last Word Float on the "secret" patio. Either way, it's the vast collection of spirits, 130-plus pages listing selections from near and far, that drives the menu and décor. Seeking an obscure absinthe or that Scotch you fell in love with in Tokyo? The savvy staff --- led by owner Jamie Boudreau --- will track it down as guests relax in the comfortable surroundings, which include a selection of vintage glassware. Tables in the snug space invite quiet conversation, which might focus on the nicely mixed drinks and clever creations on the ever-changing, seasonally driven menu. Winter warmers range from pan-roasted trout to a porcini risotto cake, or a brisket braised for 48 hours. In summer months, the kitchen showcases local greens and produce. Don't miss the updated Reuben sandwich where horseradish crème fraîche adds a kick to the house-made pastrami. In the adult beverages aspect of this experience, Canon is blazing trails by carbonating old-school favorites such as the Corpse Reviver and a Hemingway Daiquiri. But take note: These tasty concoctions go down extra easy.
