In a few months, a vine-covered trellis should be throwing shade (in a good way) on the lofty open terrace at Easy Tiger’s nicely designed new location (with its bench tables and large fans galore) to beat the inevitable summer heat. Inside, you’ll find more well-spaced seating and a large painting of the adorable namesake jungle cat. The menu is the same as ever (loaves of a variety of house-baked breads, plus croissants, scones, brownies, fabulous pretzels, and much more). For dining, there are sandwiches, salads, and sides (think crispy brussels sprouts, roasted beets). There’s also plenty of beer, wine, and cocktails (like the Tigerita, with mezcal, mango juice, and a chile-lime rim). The meat in our pastrami sandwich was ample but surprisingly dry, although the Swiss and sauerkraut helped a bit. The cream of tomato soup, though, was state of the art (with excellent slices of sourdough alongside for dipping).
