An American regional menu and a busy bar housed in a sunny, historic old building with limestone rubble walls. The macaroni and cheese will make you forget where you parked, and you know the brunch is as serious as the wait.
Midwestern details appear in the food as well as the hand-embroidered aprons here. The Cubicano uses the classic components of a Cuban sandwich, but with ballpark Bertman's mustard and "Detroit Pickles." The cheese and charcuterie boards use La Quercia salami from Iowa and Smoking Goose cured sausage from Indiana. The menu is far from predictable, though, as you'll find sardines on toast served as a zesty compote.
For more than 40 years, Pecan Street has been serving crepes and salads, Fat Chocolate Cake, and wonderful coffee to a loyal clientele.
Boasts simple surf and turf in a bistro setting with a full oyster bar, amazing mac and cheese, and great desserts. Stop by for dinner and the late-night scene or a quick prowl through the half-price bar menu at happy hour.
Frog legs? We’ll just start with the Don Combo: a platter of half fried oysters and half calamari.
The local outpost of this San Diego-based chain commodifies American classics with enough cleverness to make them seem exotic. Look for duck fat french fries with tomato jam as well as buffalo wings trimmed to resemble lollipops. The shrimp and bacon grits are a credit to their Southern classic status, and brunch is also a bright spot. Duck fat biscuits and gravy, and delicious bacon await you here.
