Over in Oakland, chef-restaurateur Daniel Patterson has just opened a fourth new restaurant, after just recently opening Plum Bar next to his one-year-old Plum at Webster and Broadway (he also owns the Michelin two-star Coi in North Beach). Haven is a New American bistro of sorts with an emphasis shared dishes, and the chef is the talented Kim Alter, who won some raves for a brief stint earlier this year at Plate Shop in Sausalito.
The cocktails at Haven are being created by Ron Boyd, who's also the chef at Plum and Plum Bar, and this one is a bright and refreshing beverage with a sort of unusual, savory ingredient: celery juice.
2 oz gin
1 oz celery juice
1/4 oz lime juice
1/2 oz simple syrup
1 oz soda
Shake the gin, celery juice, lime, and syrup with ice. Double-strain into a rocks glass. Top with soda and garnish with a celery stick.
