Of all the gin joints in the world, here’s one with real food. In the cellar of the Pearl Bottling House, music and cocktails are the backdrop to nibbles, some of which are standbys, like chips with chorizo queso, and others more interesting, like the excellent “bucket” of fried quail with peppadew rémoulade. Flavor heads to the high notes with entrées. Our favorite? Juicy, spicy fried chicken (ask for two legs!) with sweet chile sauce.
