Wink & Nod

Modern American

  • 87

Wink & Nod preserves a speakeasy vibe centered around a dim, swanky cocktail bar in the South End and a six-month-long, rotating pop-up dinner menu. Hosting a weekly Scotch club, the bar also turns out classic and house cocktails like Indian Summer (dry gin, St. Germain, grapefruit, ginger beer) or the Long Island Iced Tiki. The kitchen is a testing ground for innovative chefs and changing concepts that range from Korean fusion, modern Greek cuisine or classic American fare.
