There are two reasons you must go to Faith & Flower restaurant on the northwest corner of 9th and Flower Streets. The first is their specialty cocktail called English Milk Punch ($16). This drink is awesome. Although it has been explained to me several times, I don’t really understand what’s in it. I went to the Faith & Flower website and copied it down for you… Smith & Cross, Appleton & Bacardi 8 Rums, Bulleit Bourbon, Batavia Arrack, Pernod, Absinthe, Pineapple, Sencha Tea and Milk Clarification. It’s served from a mini milk bottle and poured over ice. I really can’t start to describe how much I love this drink. If when you go to heaven they have a cocktail reception party, this is the drink they will be serving.
The second reason is the Dungeness Crab Toast ($16). It’s crab meat mixed with jicama and avocado served on toast, topped with Green Goddess aioli. It sounds simple, but it’s so delicious. If you’re going to Faith & Flower with friends, just order your own serving. You will not want to share. It’s that good.
The best thing about Faith & Flower is that you can order both the English Milk Punch and the Dungeness Crab Toast in the bar area. You don’t have to go there and order a full meal.
