This summer marks 10 years since a mid-century modern West End neighborhood bank was transformed into an upbeat gastropub delivering playful style, re-envisioned comfort food, and fine spirits with equal aplomb. Drawing on America’s melting pot culture, the most comforting tastes from a spectrum of ethnicities are inventively refashioned for contemporary appeal – not only across a frequently updated seasonal menu, but within a single dish, such as General Tsao Chicken Tacos. Crispy fritter-battered chicken strips, ensconced in double layer blue tortillas lined with cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses, are topped with lusciously plummy sweet-sour sauce, sushi-style aioli, sesame seeds, and scallions. Tots are a house fave.
At the bar, explore classic cocktails with tasteful twists or esoteric wines. A serious beer selection features local craft brews and imports, while rotating taps invite return visits.

The Falafel Burger achieves a dietary trifecta: vegan, gluten- and dairy-free. A crispy outside/tender inside chickpea patty mimics a beefy burger mouthfeel and boasts crunchy LTO, house-made curry catsup and lemony hummus toppings. Tots or fries, of course.
A vibrant retro décor sets an upbeat mood in the open dining and bar space, and front patio seating offers al fresco dining. A covered rear lounge, complete with glowing fire pit, couches and end tables, provides a homey hangout environment – with the welcome bonus of a friendly staff happy to refill that glass or plate.
