Farmhouse Tavern has been turning heads with its elevated farmhouse cuisine since last June, drawing eager diners to the up-and-coming Junction ’hood. Noted as one of the city’s best new restaurants, the rustic spot offers a rotating, meat-heavy menu with curious monikers like “Threesome” and “Fancy Salad” demanding full explanations from the tireless servers.

The short but sweet cocktail menu is much easier to decipher. We opted for the grapefruit gimlet ($11) — a twist on the classic lime-and-gin tipple. A blend of Citadelle gin, homemade lime cordial, fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and a dash of bitters, the summery libation is the ideal way to slip into what’s bound to be a very memorable meal.

Farmhouse Tavern, 1627 Dupont St., 416-561-9114
