Most Comfortable Comfort Food & Chatty Bartenders

Zax Pints & Plates

If you fancy yourself a character in a B-movie searching for deep, brooding discussions with world-wise bartenders … well, let's put it this way, Zax Pints & Plates probably won't be the inspiration for the next Richard Linklater talkie-thon. Instead, Zax is the kind of place where any everyday joe can pull up a bar stool and chitchat about current events, TV shows, and movies, all while scarfing down Zax's sophisticated form of comfort food like Cuban sandwiches, shrimp rémoulade, lunch omelets, fine wines, pint specials, and yummy desserts.
