Useful information


This trendy eatery, the brainchild of Top Chef alums Jen Biesty and Tim Nugent, was made for sipping and supping. Outfitted with a bar up front and several dining nooks on either side of a central walkway, Shakewell keeps things Medi-chic with Moorish accents, reclaimed wood and organic elements.

Service is particularly warm, and an even warmer teal-green wood-fired oven in the back turns out deliciously smoked items like crisp falafel served with romesco. A summer squash salad with heirloom tomatoes, fried bread and feta offers an inspired blend of Greek and Tuscan flavors, and bomba rice with braised fennel, piperade, chicken and prawns is a fluffy take on paella. Finish with the caramel syrup-spiked crema Catalana for a flavorful finale.
