    Playful cuisine, delectable desserts, appropriate libations, and excellent service. The atmosphere can get boisterous, but a night at Swift's promises both a memorable meal and a super fun time. Read more

    Get the charred edamame with chili oil & pop rocks. They should be on every Best Bar Snacks of 2012 list this year.

    From grilled quail with Southern hot water grits, to Peruvian scallop tiradito, Japanese chicken tsukune, and even Canadian tater tots poutine, the menu is wildly diverse, but somehow it all works.

    Ask for Booth 1 if you have a large party. It's the big round booth at the back.

    The drinks tend to be icy, straightforward, and on the sweeter side, with undeniable Texas influence.
