 BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — A new Kennedy-themed Cape Cod restaurant has revamped its cocktail menu after some drinks drew criticism for having what the majority owner called “macabre” names.

David Keville of the Compound Bar and Grille, which opened last month about four miles from the Kennedycompound in Hyannisport, says he changed the names of several cocktails, including one called Dealey Plaza.

Dealey Plaza is the area of Dallas where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. He also changed Pink Chanel Suit and Operation Aphrodite — the World War II operation in which Lt. Joseph P. Kennedy Jr. was killed.

Keville blamed the restaurant’s liquor distributor for concocting the names.

But Tim Bruce, manager of United Liquors’ graphics department, tells the Cape Cod Times his company would only do what the client requested.
