But if there is a seat at the bar, take it. The filter-less bartender, Aviva, is a hoot. She’ll explain the kitchen’s offerings with ease but her eyes light up when the conversation turns to spirits. She’ll take you through Summit’s list of original cocktails ($12 each) and steer you toward the Sangria. Unlike the fruity, overly sweet mess that your mom stirs gently and serves at her October squash party, Summit’s Sangria is shaken hard and bracingly fresh. Meaty chunks of cucumber, fresh strawberry slices and a Cava top add a nice texture to a drink you’ll want to order by the pitcher next time (if only that were an option). Those looking for something just as refreshing with a harder edge should try the Ground to Glass, a tequila-based cocktail poured over a single rock of ice. Summit’s own orange bitters offset the sweetness of red bell pepper purée while a healthy dose of blanco tequila provides a good deal of bite. If industry standards are more your thing—Old Fashioned, Dark & Stormy, Caipirinha—Summit has a comprehensive list starting at only $10.
