CDP Bar

CDP is our brandy and sparkling wine focused cocktail lounge next door.

The bar program celebrates the diverse variety of spirits distilled from fruit which qualifies them in the wonderful category of brandy. We have an extensive collection of single vintage Armagnac and Calvados as well as non-vintage blends of pisco, grappa, kirsch and eau de vie that are mixed into most of our specialty cocktails, or that can be enjoyed simply over ice or in a snifter. Our sparkling wine selection will highlight Champagne but also includes premium California sparkling wines Cava, Sekt and Prosecco. In addition, we offer our favorite spirits beyond the world of brandy. The Commis wine list is available in the lounge.

We only reserve lounge tables for our “Côte de Boeuf Prix-Fixe Menu”.
