James Trees’ new restaurant, Ada’s, is open at Tivoli Village. The gin and tonic menu features six takes on the classic, made right at your table on a handsome bar cart. The Dutch is a savory cocktail with earthy notes from fresh herbs and marcona almonds. Served in a wine glass, the fresh greens and textures make for a lovely presentation.
