Dean’s One Trick Pony

At this casual counter-order spot in the river-adjacent Line hotel, concrete, glass, and exposed ductwork are warmed up with palms, rattan, and tropical murals, sort of tiki bar meets bank lobby. Named for Don Dean, the man- ager of the sixties-era dance-and-dinner lounge, Club Seville, that once occupied the space, it’s a welcoming place to order up a frozen Aperol spritz or black-cherry old-fashioned and read a book, catch up with friends, maybe play a game of shuffleboard. The menu is playfully eclectic, featuring such crowd pleasers as old-school, fall- apart, queso-soaked burgers with fat slices of tomato and pickle; michelada-style shrimp cock- tails; a fried chicken banh mi with crispy meat, a chicken liver spread, and pickled vegetables; and a wedge salad with cold iceberg, crispy strips of tortilla, cheddar cheese, meaty bits of bacon, and, of course, ranch dressing.
