Bliss is one of the city’s most polished—yet unfussy—restaurants. A broad Modern American menu offers fried oyster sliders on flaky buttermilk biscuits, shredded braised rabbit over a creamy Taleggio cheese polenta, and a meaty bone-in short rib with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, hon shimeji mushrooms, and candied carrots. Whether in the vintage brick dining room or the modern addition with a fire pit, a well-oiled dance between kitchen and servers makes it all magic. Reservations are recommended
