bar news

It seems that Gina Chersevani, the bartender behind the cocktail list at Rasika, has been fired. Fritz Hahn covers it here. In the interest of full disclosure, I will say that I worked at one of Ashok Bajaj’s restaurants for a little over a year, and count Gina among my friends as a result of the time I spent there. Back to the story though- Bajaj gave Fritz some incorrect info – Anne Marie Dick didn’t design the original cocktail menu. The original menu was devised by the original bartenders- Gina & Sal (now at CityZen,) and sommelier Sebastian Zutant (now at Proof), who were the original bar team when the restaurant opened in December 2005.

More on Gina from the Washington Post, Washingtonian, Washingtonian After Hours Blog, The Liquid Muse, and A Mighty Appetite.

News worth noting, don’t you think?
