Review:

Not so imperfect – indeed this is one of the most delicious Manhattans I've had the pleasure of drinking.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created by Frank Caiafa, bars manager of the celebrated Peacock Alley and La Chine restaurants at New York's The Waldorf Astoria Hotel from 2005 until its closure.
