This attractive new addition to Martini Corner is ideal for pregaming with your buds before tearing up the town or sharing a bottle of Pinot with your best girl. The bright bar area holds a couple of tall tables, and a second room is filled with cozy booths and couches that flank a big window (perfect for boy watching). Each Monday at the Drop is “Unwine’d” night, with bottles of wine at half-price and the chance to select tunes from the Drop’s impressive video jukebox for free. There’s a salsa night every Tuesday, and Sundays bring Service Industry Night, when the Drop’s signature martinis are a steal at $5 a pop and DJs Charlie Burt (known by his “Tiger Beats” handle) and John Ingle spin guilty pleasures and ´80s jams.

Restaurant Details

The Drop is a tiny saloon with ambitions of being a neighborhood bistro. It’s already halfway there; owners Ernesto Peralta and Eddie Crane — two former Capital Grille bartenders — have hired talented young chef Josh Eans to oversee the droplet-sized kitchen. Lacking a fully equipped kitchen, Eans creates an impressive collection of starters, salads and sandwiches using an array of unexpected ingredients: toasted pistachios, smoked salmon, pancetta, candied beets. He doesn’t serve entrées, relying instead on tasty tapas-style fare to accompany drinking and flirting. Josh’s wife, pastry chef Abby Jo Eans, whips up a few dazzling small desserts that are almost as lyrical as the 10,000 musical choices on The Drop’s video jukebox. — Charles Ferruzza
