Brash, bold, and sprawling—what more could a maverick want? Early on, some of the a la carte menu seemed a bit precious, but now the plates and presentation hit all the “how we eat now” targets. Shareable? Yes. Regional flavors? Yes. The flatiron steak always gets rave reviews; the juicy, perfectly prepared grass-fed sirloin was beyond par; and the crispy duck was really that. Add your favorite sides (layers of pavé potatoes and an iron skillet of charred brussels sprouts, for example). Anything that comes off the oak-fired grill is infused with flavor and cooked by an expert. At lunch, you can go for a burger or pastrami sandwich with sauerkraut.
