93′ Til

It won’t be long till we return to 93’ Til (so named for a song by the Oakland band Souls of Mischief). Brought to the Menil neighborhood by California transplants, this casual eatery/record lounge (a curated playlist is listed on the menu, along with the food), with its open-air deck and thumping vintage vinyl, feels like a celebration. And with an eclectic food and drink menu—as well as a “cork dork” to guide wine pairings—let the party begin! Try this: the chicken sandwich, a remarkable beast that resembles a squat airplane from the twenties. A Slow Dough challah bun, with a crispy, spicy breast protruding aggressively from both sides, rests on a bed of vinegary slaw and a string of house pickles. It was one of the best bites we’ve had all year. Also the subtle seared branzino, with sauce vierge and an asparagus relish. And don’t miss the crunchy fingerling potatoes or the complex, multihued beet salad. Pro tip: Parking can be an issue given the small lot, but spots on the street are usually available.
