While Baowry’s food and drinks may each be good in their own right, owner Alan Torres' specialty is pairing the two—he toyed and tinkered with syrups and spirits until he'd fashioned a unique list of cocktails that compliment the flavors in the food. If you're ordering a basket of pillowy buns (pork, duck and veggie terrine), pair it with a Baowry Vesper, a floral drink that's balanced with ginger vodka and the sting of local gin.
Cheese & Crack Snack Shop
The best word to sum up Nathan Hall and William F. Steuernagel V’s cheese, cracker and more shop is, without a doubt, delightful. Where else will a Lincoln will buy you a tiny, but highly piled plate of nachos—well, sort of. They look and crunch like nachos except this plate is loaded with kettle chips, mornay, hot sauce and spoonfuls of pickled lentils.
Sushi's a serious business and Masu is serious about doing it right—but not so serious that it's joyless. The rolls are carefully presented and the nigiri is so perfectly lush and velvety that soy sauce and wasabi, natrually, are unnecessary. And the best part? Happy hour is every day, twice a day, running from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 4 to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, and every night from 10 p.m. to close.
Where will you be happy houring today? Dunno? Why not pass for once on burgers and pints and instead say, “Yes!” to homemade crackers, steamed buns and raw fish?
