You will indeed fare well at Bidwell, tucked inside Union Market with its array of stalls peddling everything from arepas to empanadas. It checks off all of the boxes for a modern hot spot with its industrial-chic design, hipster-packed bar and buzz-worthy cooking. Bidwell takes the farm-to-table trend and tops it—quite literally—since the rooftop garden supplies much of the produce.
Salads are a great way to sample the goods of this kitchen. Start with the Cobb, combining crisp romaine, cherry tomatoes, blue cheese and slices of perfect skirt steak. The popular Irish-American onion soup pairs well with a selection of sausages, while grilled chicken sandwich is a lunchtime thrill. Butterscotch pudding with chocolate shavings is an absolute sweet treat.
