"I've never experienced bar service at the level of David Vancil's-he is THE BEST. There is a reason he is called The Sensei! When he is behind the bar, it"s like a magician with his cape on. You don't even see his hands moving then abracadabra you've got a drink in your hand. And it's either your favorite drink, or your new favorite drink! That's how he works. And he brings this level of service and integrity each and every night. I would take anything David says straight to the bank when it comes to the history of bar service, or the modernization of it.
