Here’s our weekly look back at some of our recommended dining experiences:
If the well-curated beer and wine lists don’t entice you, the gastro pub’s menu will. As one bold dish after another steams out of the kitchen, they carry a sense of familiar comfort that mirrors the shabby-fresh setting.
Clematis dining district regulars flock to this eatery, where executive chef Fritz Cassel has been creating excellent, soulful pub dishes — from bar bites to brunch to large plates — for more than three years. As a result, the place is bustling, so be prepared to wait for a table.
At Hullabaloo, with its speakeasy feel, its indoor and outdoor dining options, its spare walls hung with moody black-and-white photographs (rock on, Sid Vicious), the wait seems almost effortless.
If you go:
