    Thanks to Nick Balla's ahead-of-the-curve Eastern European menus, this rustic neighborhood staple continues to be one of the hottest reservations in town. [Eater 38 Member]

    On the weekend, sample the open-face smørrebrød. A sourdough sprouted rye pairs perfectly with Quark cheese and a tapenade made from pickled green walnuts: Read more

    We shared everything and and we liked everything. We especially liked the trout, the smoked potatoes, the beets, and the cured salmon. Service was attentive and very knowledgeable.

    Nic Balla and Cortney Burns churn out a constantly changing menu, inspired by Eastern Europe but sourced locally (and often fermented in house), accompanied by Chad Robertson's stellar loaves.

    Their Smørrebrød make the Danish dish more accessible without compromising authenticity or quality. Delicious grown-ups brunch.

    Bar Tartine’s menu is an evolving theater for Chef Chad Robertson’s restless enthusiasms. The latest? Sweet Kamut toast grilled to a chewy crunch with bottarga, dried mushrooms, and dulse seaweed.

    It's classy, it's dark and it's delicious. Bone marrows are off the hook. Bring a date and show her how you bone down marrows.

    Nick Balla & Cortney Burns make food that sounds improbable-Hungarian dishes with Japanese influences--but tastes remarkable. Bonus: They make pickles, spices, sodas, cured meats & cheeses in house. Read more

    Chicken- delicious. Stay AWAY from the orange gimlet that tastes like dish soap gone bad.

    Simply you can't go wrong! They have very nice food, spiced up with some Hungarian style. Brunch recommendations: paprika cheese spread, potato flat bread, smoked potatos. The bread is also gorgeous!

    The Friends and Family (tasting) menu costs about twice as much as you would normally spend. You also get twice as much food as you would normally eat.
