Ah, the Dirty Martini, a simple, elegant classic. Or is it? Too often, Dirty Martinis arrive overly salty, under-olived, or as $15 worth of eh. At Frankie & Johnnies, though, they’ve mastered this ostensibly basic cocktail. It’s balanced, just salty enough that you won’t feel the need to order a pitcher of water afterward. And, if you ask nicely, you may even get them to add blue-cheese-stuffed olives.
