Try it: Ink Eats and Drinks Grapefruit Martini


Ink Eats & Drinks is one of midtown’s most distinctive dining and drinking establishments. Despite its vibrant, tattoo-d edgy, urban vibe, I’ve found it to be equally warm and welcoming to families and the 50-plus crowd as it is to its young, garrulous (and often tatted) regulars. It’s also a surprisingly great spot for weekend brunch—don’t miss the fabulous huevos rancheros or the plump shrimp omelet, packed with spinach, tomatoes and melted Swiss cheese. While famous for its make-your-own Bloody Mary station during weekend brunch, the establishment also offers another cocktail that’s sure to get your day going in the right direction—the grapefruit martini. Ingredients in this vivacious tipple include an intriguing grapefruit vodka, muddled cucumber, fresh lemon juice and a dash of Sprite. The combination is well-balanced, exuberantly citrusy and just sweet enough, with a lingering, refreshing aftertaste of cucumber. But don’t limit your enjoyment of this cocktail to weekend brunch—it would also be terrific on a scorching summer afternoon.

Ink is one of those places where you feel cool just because you’re there. The walls and ceilings are covered with oversized tattoo designs (hence the name of the place), and artwork by hot young Sacramento painter David Garibaldi. The menu is American comfort food with a modern twist. Our favorite: the Sacramento sliders, Ink’s homage to the classic, tiny White Castle burgers. But these are better, made with Hawaiian sweet rolls, pickles and caramelized onions. And don’t miss the breakfast sliders, an egg, cheese and meat version that puts Egg McMuffins to shame. It’s also a great place for late-night burgers and meatloaf sandwiches. And when we say late night, we mean it: get your fix ’til 4 a.m.on Friday and Saturday.
