    A spiritus gastro pub w inovative twists on classic whiskey cocktails as well as a handful of their own luminous creations. Excellent selection of American, Scottish, Irish and Japanese whiskeys.

    Bacon makes everything better, we all know this. So you obviously must order the wood-oven-roasted, bacon-wrapped trout (w/ leeks, fennel, almonds, arugula, lemon-caper brown butter). Read more

    The burata is super yummy if you're a fan of soft cheeses. Also the asparagus with bacon and egg is great. Seasonal favorite for summer is the watermelon salad

    Relaxing, non-insane brunch option. Usually no wait, low-key, tasty. Nothing earth-shattering on the menu, but a delightful experience.

    The Dad's Wallet is a tasty drink. Ask for Phil at the bar. He's great. Be sure to try the ribeye. So good.
