Kirk Estopinal - CURE - New Orleans
By Billy Harris
With a focus on providing consistent and eclectic yet approachable cocktails, CURE in New Orleans has set a benchmark for bars in the Big Easy. Recently named one of the top bars in the country by Esquire magazine, the fame has not diminished a neighborhood feel and a dedication to its local patrons. Kirk Estopinal was kind enough to jump behind the bar after only a few hours of sleep (it was Tales of the Cocktail after all) and hang with Harris.
