The Kitchen Sink: Cocktails, Cured meat, Cuban food

News, notes, and miscellany from this week in East Bay food and drink:

As we reported last week, Uptown is set to get a flurry of (well, three) new bars in the coming months. The first of those, Dogwood — a classy cocktail joint with an expansive menu of charcuterie-style snacks — officially opened this week, and the first assessments seem to be pretty positive: bloggeth Urban Daddy:

We think you’ll agree that more cocktail dens would do well to augment their bar with a designated meat counter. Especially one slicing up house-cured meats with a hand-cranked, Ferrari-red slicer. Until then, this spot should tide you over.
The Kitchen Sink stopped by at around 8 this Wednesday and the place was, indeed, fairly full. Blurry iPhone pics below!
