The innovative bar concept from owners Jay Bordeleau (Beretta, Bacar) and David Kurtz (Saison, Coi) melds fine dining quality with neighborly attitude. An inventive menu is divided into categories — distilled (cocktails), plated (food), and fermented (wine/beer) — in three correlating columns for seamless food-to-drink tutorials.

What to Order

"Order any cocktail. I even asked the bartenders to "surprise me" and told them I was a whiskey drinker."

Eric Dunn
What to Order

"The Arctic Char with pei mussels is fantastic."

Go the Extra Mile

"Sit upstairs so you can people watch!"

The exceptional Chinatown duck sliders ($9 for two), a gooey mash of meat with shiitake mushrooms, bitter greens and bacon on a brioche bun, is designed for the 5 Spot ($11) made with aged rum, ginger, lime, maple, Thai basil and a hint of five-spice; it's a nice pairing, with the flavors in the food subtly echoed in the expertly prepared cocktail. The "fermented pairing" is La Maudite ($9), an amber red ale from Canada with enough strength to stand up to the food.

If you’re coming with a date (and you should), the upstairs mezzanine will serve as a little hideaway. Here, you’ll slide into a fireside sofa, opt for the simpler bites menu, and go the oysters and bubbly route.
