BLT Steak sends us word that Rico Wisner has been hired as a mixologist for BLT Steak. Wisner used to work for the Kimpton Hotels group at such bars as Topaz Bar. He was known for unique cocktails such as those inspired by presidential candidates.
Wisner is the second well-known bartender to end up at BLT Steak. The restaurant also hired Steve Oshana, formerly of Quench and Elisir. The new mixologists are currently at work crafting a new cocktail menu for BLT. It will likely appear in about a week or so, and feature barrel-aged spirits and fall-inspired drinks.
