Situated on a trendy corner and marked by a single ampersand over the door, this is the ultimate merging of the Old World and New Order. It's where remnants of a glorious past live in harmony with chefs who prefer bandanas and beards to toques. The cuisine is as haute as ever despite the saloon-like feel. From early to late, Millennials never seem to tire of this local hangout. Its numerous dining nooks include the happening bar that pours exceptional cocktails, boisterous front dining room, and exposed brick alcove for both space and privacy. Although the lunch menu offered here is particularly limited, the kitchen does boast a "go bold or go home" sort of creative flair-even though it may at times get lost in endless dots and drizzles of garnish. And while the à la carte items sound complex, superb taste is at the center of each dish. Don't miss the signature "duck in a jar" that is turned out into a bowl to better appreciate the succulent array of hearty duck pastrami, duck confit and rice beans balanced with intriguing notes of sweet acidity from fresh raspberries and cubes of vinegar jelly. Distinct desserts may include a chocolate-pecan praline, Bourbon caramel, and espresso terrine garnished with shards of burnt honey and smooth malt ice cream.
