An oasis of comfort food and creativity meld together in this upbeat scene where the simple becomes the spectacular.
Tasty takes on homemade comfort food draw families, foodies and first dates alike to this two-story restaurant and swanky bar, where global touches like sambal and coconut ginger cream show off creative twists, but large plates like the Buttermilk Fried Chicken Sandwich – a hefty handful of classic fried chicken paired with chicken sausage gravy – rejuvenate casual roots. If you manage to put your fork down, handcrafted cocktails like the Grapefruit Thyme – deepened with a dash of rosemary peppercorn bitters – offer a refreshing pause.
The kitchen rolls out inventive but approachable fare by spinning spectacular complements into recognizable dishes. Small plates like Lamb Meatballs – lamb and pork come together to form flavorful spheres served in spicy tomato sauce – pack big flavor: a topping of whipped lemon ricotta hushes the heat, pickled red onions lend a pop of acidity, and crushed almonds give this Italian-inspired dish a satisfying crunch.
