We are counting down the days before our dream becomes a reality and we can finally share with you the fruits of our hard labor.. Oh. Man. We are so excited!!! We have been in training all week with our staff, educating them on all of the dishes and drinks that we will be offering on our opening menu. We not only want you to have top notch service, eats, and drinks when you come visit us, but we want you to walk into Cure and feel like home.. 

So to help make this possible, and to relieve the tension before opening day a tiny bit we thought we would introduce you to our Head Mixologist, Matt Landry.

Matt is brilliant behind the bar.. his professionalism and profound creative energy has found a perfect home at here at Cure and we can't wait for you to experience his genius yourself!! So much so, that he has kindly offered to share with you one of his favorite summer drink recipes.. just in time for the last few backyard BBQ's we have left of the season!

He calls this one the Mangopeña. It is an immaculate medley of sweet and spicy, perfect for these hot and humid weekends we've been having. We hope you like it!
