Here is one more place, Doi Moi, offering tiki drinks in Washington D.C. this summer.
Doi Moi has become one of my favorite restaurants, with inventive, and often very hot, Vietnamese inspired food.
Doi Moi is revamping its cocktail program for the summer, and the result will be Scorpion bowls, Pina Coladas and daiquiris.
Bar director Adam Bernbach is using the warm weather to play with some of his favorite cocktails (he considers the Pina Colada to be quite underrated) and to emphasize how well Tiki drinks can pair with spicy Asian cuisine. Look for classic Tiki drinks like the Mai Tai and the Suffering Bastard, plus some under-the-radar offerings and original spins.
Update: Drinks will be $12-$14 each; the bowls are $35. The new menu will debut in full come July 1.
