Bottoms Up: Westend Bistro’s Root of the Matter


Sometimes life calls for a cocktail — especially on a Friday.  While you can’t go wrong with a simple vodka and soda, there are times when you want to really shake things up. We turn to area restaurants and bars for inspiration. This week, Westend Bistro shares their Root of the Matter cocktail.
