Neighborhood place offering craft beer and cocktails, plus pasta, pizzettas, and bar bites.
This Taylor Street spot bills itself as a bar with a kitchen, but while the bar part comes through loud and clear, it's Italian soul food that steals the show. Oozing arancini nestle in an oxtail ragu; a salad of shaved fennel, citrus, and bitter greens tastes fresh no matter the time of year. More conventional bar food is just as good: the grass-fed burger loaded with aioli, cheese, and bacon jam might be lost on tipsy revelers, but it's reasonably priced and too good not to catch on.
