A CHAT WITH ROMAN ABOUT SPIRITS, LIFE AND THE INDUSTRY
WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE RHUBARBARIAN THAT YOU LOVE?
Roman: I love utilizing the special products around the bar. I fell in love the rhubarb bitters. It’s a very spirit balanced cocktail for people who do not normally drink whiskey. The sweetness and bitterness of the rhubarb plays well all over the tongue. This is Roman’s first official creation and has now been added to the Cocktail Menu at Salt & Cleaver
WHICH IS YOUR FAVORITE BAR BESIDES THE ONES YOU WORK AT?
Roman: The Alibi with my friends. Or I like to class it up with the lady at Juniper & Ivy.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO IN SAN DIEGO?
Roman: Eating and drinking. I love trying the new restaurants that pop up. Current favorite spots to eat include: Cantina Mayhuel and Hinotez.
OTHER THAN HENEBERY, WHAT IS YOUR SPIRIT OF CHOICE?
Roman: Corralejo Reposado and Hendricks Gin.
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LOCAL BEER?
Roman: Right now is the Strawberry Blonde from Acoustic Ales.
WHAT WAS THE FIRST SPIRIT YOU EVER DRANK?
Roman: Crown Royal, and Hypnotic. It wasn’t the most pleasant experience. I started by playing quarters with shots of Crown as an early teen.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE THOSE WHO ARE NEW TO THE INDUSTRY?
Roman: From a newcomers perspective: listen, absorb, ask questions, retain information, be humble, stay modest and have fun!! We’re working in a bar.
WHAT IS THE PERFECT DAY OFF FOR YOU?
Roman: Day passes to the pool and day drinking at Lafayette Hotel. I’m either poolside or couchside playing Xbox Destiny.
WHAT WOULD YOU RECOMMEND FOR THE FIRST TIMER AT SALT & CLEVER?
Roman: Of course, I highly suggest the Rhubarbarian. For food: Duck Duck Pig (duck and bacon sausage and order of fried pickles).
Go order The Rhubarbian at Salt & Cleaver.
Thank you, Roman, for being a #spiritedcitizen.
