Dining Guide

Fans of Gardner barely had time to mourn its demise before owners Ben Edgerton and Andrew Wiseheart opened Chicon in its place. Gardner’s minimalist design and vegetable-forward menu were scrapped to make way for what customers really wanted: more meat, a comfy look, and much lower prices. Emblematic are dishes like flatiron steak rubbed with south-of-the-border spices and grilled chicken and two chile sauces with fluffy camp bread for taco making.
