At New York newbie Kat & Theo, chef Paras Shah plates up a Mediterranean-inspired modern American menu of chicken with cocoa and carrots and octopus with orange and oregano. Meanwhile, barman Michael Timmons heads up the restaurant's inspired list of cocktails, which learn more toward the savory side than sweet. Below, he mixes sherry, aged rum, and a bit of coffee for a warming winter intoxicant.
