MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

There’s always a crowd at this lively neighborhood standby, where groups of friends, parents on date night and trendy couples congregate for drinks at the copper-topped bar. Flanked by organic groceries, indie bookstores and antique shops, its surroundings speak of peace, weaving a pleasantly bohemian spell that captivates both regulars and newcomers alike. Rustic American cooking with a hint of Italian flair dominates this tavern's menu, and the local Belfiore burrata-served atop diced pears, honey-cashew cream and peppery arugula-is a surefire hit. A bit of Calabrian chili adds a welcoming bit of heat to the otherwise earthy pan-roasted Maple Leaf duck breast, while the warm mini Bundt cake bursts with chocolate goodness.
