The Vanguard at Work: Creating the Signature Cocktail

Matthew Biancaniello creating the never before seen, or tasted, Harold & MaudeTAIL !

It's official! We have a signature cocktail, The Harold & MaudeTAIL, thanks to our favorite Bar Chef, Matthew Biancaniello. The signature drink is part Scotch, part wine, and a whole lotta creative love, "The Laugh Factory meets Beacon Hill", according to Matt. That's about right on target. We got to sit down with this visionary vanguard as he prepped for his pop up at the opening of Avenue 31 on Sunset Plaza, Los Angeles.
