Mixologist: Andrew Ruth, Barred Owl Butcher & Table

Andrew Ruth isn’t afraid to take risks at Barred Owl. When the restaurant opened, he introduced the largest selection of amaro in town. His bar program focuses on sustainability by using scraps leftover from the kitchen, while also pushing diners to try something outside of their comfort zone. (Photo by LG Patterson)
