This restaurant and popular bar pumps out a comfort food menu for dinner and weekend brunch, paired with a full bar and the occasional dance party in the back room. Sister co-owners Jane and Cathy Virga have mixed mostly local reclaimed décor with “psychedelic art deco” tiling everything from tables and walls to the cups. Creamy artichoke-and-chard dip comes with a whole loaf of bread for scooping; macaroni and cheese is a baked mix of handmade pasta and three cheeses. The southern-style pulled pork sandwich is topped with collard slaw and pickles, but could use more pork. At brunch, mains including a cheesy baked egg strata with large pieces of Canadian bacon or an excellent recent French toast topped with fresh fruit, are paired with a choice of homey sides, including cheesy kale salad, cheese grits, cannelloni beans, quinoa, or a buttermilk biscuit.
