Celebrating ten years in the pretty, historic Fairmount neighborhood, this casual eatery and bar is a popular hangout for regulars. Chef Osman Suarez creates an approachable, wine-friendly menu filled with classic American dishes—some with a bit of international flair. Order this to go: The signature layered spinach salad with mandarin oranges, dried cherries, pecans, mushrooms, bacon, and blue cheese never disappoints, nor does the lobster bisque. Meat loaf made with ribeye trimmings and served with a mushroom demiglace is dependably good, and the chicken-fried steak ranks among our top picks. Pro tip: Check the restaurant’s Facebook page for the family meal deal, which changes each week. Our beef bourguignonne with egg noodles hit just the right balance of comfort and elegance, and it’s a steal at $25 for two servings or $40 for four.
