From our friends at 701 Restaurant & The Oval Room...

Ashok Bajaj is pleased announce that two of his landmark power dining restaurants, 701 Restaurant and The Oval Room, will each debut two election-themed cocktails this fall. Beginning Tuesday, September 6th, these award-winning restaurants will invite guests to show their support of the 2016 presidential candidates by casting their vote through ordering one of their signature cocktails. All four cocktails are priced at $12 each and will be available from Tuesday, September 6th through Election Night on Tuesday, November 8th during both lunch and dinner service. Additionally, both restaurants will be conducting informal polling weekly to see which cocktail is outselling its lively competitor.
