Dai Due Butcher Shop & Supper Club

American Cafe, Burger Joint, Pan-AsianEast$10-$25 First Plates 

Everything from Chef Jesse Griffiths' unassuming hotspot is local, even the tea. Expect the choicest cuts of meat, just out of the water seafood, and barely harvested vegetables. The service is as adept as the kitchen.

Quickie Pickie

Coffeehouse, Deli/Sandwich Shop, Gastro PubEast$10-$25

There are still some eclectic grocery items here, but the real story is 24 local and craft beer taps and a collection of small plates for happy hour and late-night foragers alike. Breakfast tacos emerge at 7am on weekdays here with a sassy sweet potato option, before the sandwiches steal the spotlight. Wine alternatives include three whites, three reds, a sparkling, as well as a rose by the glass. We wonder if we can still get a Slushie...
