The restaurant will offer a special "Bone Appetite" menu consisting of Sweet Potato Strips ($4), Frozen Peanut Butter & Banana ($4) and Chicken and Rice for diners' pets to enjoy on Onward's dog-friendly patio. A portion of proceeds from the dog menu sales will benefit One Tail at a Time Dog Rescue.

To complement the menu, new cocktails include a Frosé (rosé, vodka, Luxardo bitter, lime and pineapple syrup; $12), the Stellar Sip (tequila, cava, saline water, lemon, simple syrup, cucumber, mint; $13), the Killer Queen (rosé gin, still rosé, Luxardo bitter, Pineapple syrup, lime juice, mint; $13), and a Bergamotto Punch Per Due (Italicus, chardonnay, pineapple syrup, citrus, cucumber and mint served in a copper pineapple; $20). Assistant General Manager and Bar Director Vicente Romero has also curated a "Rosé Menu" featuring five picks available by the glass or bottle (ranging from $12 to $60) for summer sipping including Proyecto Hermanas, Summer Water, Terre Gaie and more.
