A singular experience, derived from a vibrant retro décor and exceptional plate-and-glass offerings, fully engage the senses while nourishing body and soul. Classic dishes from a wide range of ethnicities and regions are inventively reconfigured to stimulate and satisfy contemporary tastes. Indeed, Asian and Latin flavors can meld beautifully in such preparations as General Tso Chicken Tacos or Tuna Guac-a-Poke. Even the most familiar fare, such as Mac’n’Cheese, comes in at least three versions, including Traditional, Truffled Parmesan Shrimp, and Chipotle Bacon. Options include half-portions – great for trying several styles – and add-ons such as chicken or the ever-popular fried egg. The cooper cheese sauce base for the pasta shells is gluten-free (which is unusual) and gluten-
free pasta is also available.
The seasonally revamped menu now features compartmentalized choices that provide more flexibility when ordering. Handhelds – “Paws & Maws” in the menu’s playful terminology – formerly accompanied with fries or tots are now stand-alone items. Guests may then order a small portion of their favorite side-spuds as desired, or choose a large serving for sharing.
Head to the bar and lounge to explore an intriguing list of house specialty cocktails or –
on a quiet evening – allow an expert mixologist to create a bespoke cocktail tailored to your tastes. With sixteen rotating taps, beer geeks can indulge in a spectrum of craft brews. Esoteric wines by the glass or bottle round out refined beverage choices.
The sleek mid-century modern design of this former bank received a recent mini-makeover, with rustic wood panels and a cozy banquette crafted from old-growth Pennsylvania pine trees felled by a hurricane. This natural element harmonizes with stone walls and brings a visual balance to brightly hued funky-chic furnishings. Outdoor hospitality is offered year-round on a roof-topped rear lounge appointed with a fire pit, two space heaters, and homey furniture.
