Second Bar + Kitchen

With its sprawling leather banquettes and a menu of slightly wonky twists on classic American flavors (think pepperoni soup with garlic croutons or buffalo fried pickles with Gorgonzola and hot sauce), this Downtown favorite continues to please. It certainly doesn’t hurt that their patio is the best place for people-watching in the city.
