Relative newbie 1129 seems to have its systems dialed in, as evidenced by the cocktail and burger I order, though I can’t sit on the lower riverside patio since I’m drinking (ah dumb alcohol laws). At least I can still be outside on a glassed-in patio.

C. Springs’ Lee Spirits Co. gets decent play on a signature cocktail list, including the Forbidden Fruit cocktail that features both Lee’s dry gin and their Forbidden Fruit Liqueur with fresh lime juice. It’s perfectly balanced between the citrus, sweet element and bitter botanical body — well made.

The 1129 Burger sports grass-fed beef, according to the menu, and mine’s prepped close enough to a requested medium rare and full of flavor from both grilled pineapple and a pineapple teriyaki sauce, which does make it a sticky affair. Red onions and house slaw, lathered in a nice red pepper aioli, add crunch, supported by a truly fresh side salad with a bright citrus vinaigrette.

More of both the food and drink menu allure, and I’d be happy to return to sample more, seeing they aren’t bastardizing the word “craft” like too many eclectic bistros out there.
