Foursquare Tips

  • Critic Tom Sietsema's first bite: Get the quartet of steamed shrimp/pork belly dumplings for $6. A Sazerac fan probably will do a double-take when he spots the classic being poured for $8.
  • Sit outside. The 80s Old Fashion and Fried Eggplant Balls are incredible
  • Amazing happy hour where you can get fantastic cocktails, like a Sazerac, for just $5!
  • One of the best crafted-cocktail lists in the city. Nothing on the menu will disappoint you... amazing.
  • The tiki tap drinks are strong and delicious. The shrimp and belly dumplings are worth your time.
  • Suffering bastard on tap
  • The bar area is pretty small but has a great vibe. Definitely going back! The orange crushes are delicious :)
  • Very interesting cocktails, tiki drinks, lovely fenced patio and yummy small plates - fried eggplant balls were amazing.
  • Mark the waiter is so hot!!
  • The Stepdad drink: requires blowtorch to create. Must try!
  • Like sushi in a glass, but with booze, the Jiro Dreams of Sidebar is a combo of housemade wasabi syrup, ginger, Shochu, and rice wine vinegar that's garnished w/ nori.
  • The cocktails are so interesting and delicious! I think the Clover Club is my favorite. The fries are also just right.
  • Bottomless champagne/bloody mary brunch is fantastic. Seating is limited, so arrive early.
  • Great cocktails in a cool space
  • The 80's old fashioned was awesome. Also the fries are great with the chimichurri sauce and fried egg on top!
  • Great spot for a quick brunch. Order the cheddar chive biscuits to start!
  • happy hour with $5 and $6 cocktails makes it one of the best places for a Monday night in the neighborhood
  • 80's Old Fashioned. Definitely don't understand how they make it - but so good.
  • Really cute little spot, great for date night. Low lighting, very reasonably priced food and good service. Wine also decently priced which is rare for US. Recommend the mussels!
  • Went there maybe for the last time. The two recent times I've been here the food had been subpar and the drinks still aren't being prepared as they use to be. Sigh.
