MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Savvy locals flock to this out-of-the-way charmer, where reasonable prices and an approachable menu draw a crowd of regulars—many of whom have their taste buds set on the famed fried chicken. Thanks to Backyard’s husband-and-wife team, you’ll feel as though you’re in a private home, and the patio looks like a real backyard, complete with picnic tables and a tree strung with lights.

Dishes rotate seasonally, but you might find a tender grilled calamari salad with blood oranges and pickled sunchokes; or creamy house-made pasta à la carbonara with black trumpet mushrooms and smoky bacon. Don't miss the velvety chocolate pudding with salted caramel.

With doughnuts accompanied by apple-persimmon butter and eggs Benedict atop biscuits, brunch is a hit.
