Apologies to Dewey Beach bar Nalu. In this week’s City Paper, I compared their standard gin-and-tonic – a $5.75 McCormick – to that served at The Starboard, a $6.50 Tanqueray-and-tonic.
Nalu owner Regan Derrickson told me that while McCormick is indeed the rail gin at Nalu, their Tanqueray-and-tonic, like that served at The Starboard, costs $6.50. So if you’re in Nalu this weekend, be sure to ask for the good stuff – you’ll get a fair price, and the step up from McCormick’s paint-thinner is worth it.
