Dining Guide

8TE Modern American

Breakfast-lunch-dinner joints often do many things, and none too well. 8TE is a delightful exception, whether serving churros waffles or a buttermilk-and-sweet-tea-brined-fried-chicken sandwich—messy but delivered, helpfully, on a cutting board. 8TE’s lively space belies its strip-center location, with vintage-style industrial chairs and tall tables. Owner Megan Dat Lee grew up in a family of restaurateurs, and the experience shows. Her parents can be seen from the zinc bar breaking down whole salmon for the sriracha-glazed filets with roasted eggplant and spinach-feta quinoa.
