Brandy cocktails are the draw at seductive Trou Normand, the second project from prominent San Francisco barman Thad Vogler. His first, Bar Agricole, has been luring diners to a particularly industrial patch of the SOMA district since 2010, with its sleek, wood-adorned old warehouse setting nurtured with sustainable materials and an organic garden. Matching this Zen air are cocktails grounded in freshness and simplicity. Consider the El Presidente (white rum, vermouth blanc, grenadine, curacao, orange bitters) or the Zamboanga (Armagnac, lime, pineapple gomme, maraschino, aromatic bitters). They complement an ever-changing menu that always revolves around the bounty of seasonal California ingredients.
