Anise has opened in The Village as part of their multi-billion dollar expansion, and it’s just one new spot of MANY! The whole complex is worth checking out, and Anise is the perfect place to gather for a casual drink with friends, or a sophisticated date night!

Find Anise at the back lobby of the The Drey Hotel (another new addition to the Village.) This Bamboo chandelier filled space features wines on tap, and uniquely crafted cocktails & Mediterranean bites! Choose to take a seat at the bar for a more casual dining experience, or head to the back for a formal sit down dinner inside, or enjoy the patio seating overlooking their country club pool for sunset views.
Thirty wines by glass, 10 wines on tap and 135 wines total wines to choose from, complete with 3, 5 or 9oz pours (or the whole bottle of course!) the small pours make it a great way to sample wines from around the globe, but you can also try a craft cocktail. We did so via the “Barcelona Bamboo” cocktail with sherry, Dolin Blanc, rosemary, and bitters…which we would happily get again! In fact, all the cocktails are refreshing and sound like you’d be sipping them overlooking the Amalfi Coast.
The food draws from every country that touches the Mediterranean, letting you taste your way through the coastal-inspired menu. Salads, meat & cheese boards, mezzes, flatbreads & mains…start with the Smoke Eggplant Dip served with crisp pita bread, or share their roasted lamb flatbread with goat cheese, for savory and sweet. For the main course, we tried the Grilled Wester Ross Salmon, cooked to perfection with Romesco sauce for extra flavor.
