This location does a good job of reinforcing the established ESK brand, from the friendly counter service with wine and beer on tap, to the gonzo artwork by punk rock painter Peelander Yel­low. The menu boasts ESK "classics," the dishes that made the original trailer famous: Poor Qui's pork belly buns, beet home fries, chicken karaage, and brussels sprouts salad.
