Little Jumbo

Little Jumbo
Follow the neon sign of the pink elephant down a long hallway to locate this dark, tucked-away temple of food and strong drink. Run by local cocktail savant Shawn Soole, the menu pairs inventive libations like the Afro Samurai (Johnnie Walker Black, plum wine, “Kuma” bitters, lemon and gomme syrup) with French-influenced sharing-style plates like slow-cooked pork jowl over creamed cabbage. The spirits list is something to behold, with one full page of the 16-page “Admiral’s List” devoted to absinthe, served from a metal drip fountain nicknamed Bertha.
