You already know about the new Bloody Mary menu, complete with foie, bacon and even watermelon, that launches this weekend at Fig, but there are a couple new cocktail menus to try.

Drago Centro recently swapped out its winter cocktail menu for 10 new seasonal drinks, including Bulleit rye paired with Cynar, pineapple and sage (the evocatively named Bullet with Butterfly Wings) and the Green Flash made with Sombra Mezcal, Navan-infused raisins and half-a-dozen other ingredients including cilantro and coconut cream.

Asia de Cuba recently launched Out Of Office Fridays, a Friday afternoon happy hour from 1 to 4 p.m.. The restaurant's signature mojitos go for only $5, and a handful of dishes -- including tuna pica, lobster shiitake potstickers and crab croquetas -- have also been marked to down to $5 apiece.

    ChocoChicken is a restaurant dedicated to chocolate-flavored chicken. It sounds like a joke. And when Adam Fleischman, founder of the Umami empire and monetary force behind many other L.A. restaurants, announced in January that he’d be opening a concept based not around mole but actual, yes, chocolate-flavored chicken, many of us treated it as a joke. It is not.
