I first tasted a Blood and Sand cocktail while visiting a favorite restaurant, Hardware. The picture on the menu reminded me of a Manhattan so I thought I’d give it a try.
Let me tell you about the most amazing restaurant you haven’t heard of. I live in the far west suburbs of Chicago. I mean, there’s a cornfield behind my house. An hour west of Chicago feels like a few days from the city. However, we can drive about 30 minutes east and find incredible restaurants. Enter…Hardware Restaurant.
