  • Best fries in the Ville!
  • Broadbent Country Ham Falafel is a must-order appetizer--beloved Kentucky ham is mixed in with the chickpeas before each falafel ball is shaped and fried, adding smoky pigginess to each bite.
  • While the reviews of the 30-foot-tall golden naked David in front of its entrance are mixed, new executive chef Levon Wallace's menu has drawn near universal praise.
  • Listed as a Silver Medal winning bar, it still stands out from the crowd.
