Trying to eat light? Why not try a diet of mainly liquids? Like, say, a cocktail with a just a little bite on the side. Here are the local places to enjoy some well-crafted drinks with an interesting small plate on the side. You'll feel like a model of restraint.
A wonderful spot to spend an chatty evening with pals around cocktails and very well-crafted small bites.
Lots of great little dishes on the menu, but the dish that stuck with me most was the pretzel with rarebit. Don't miss!
Even if you have a favorite drink, I recommend letting the bartender mix you up something based on your favorite base. Great way to expand your palate and try something new.
Great spot for cocktails & small plates. A big fan of the radiccho if it's on the menu. Not a cocktail drinker? Check out the ginger beer and housemade elderflower soda.
The whole menu is great, but recommend going for cocktails and sharing of little dishes.
Outstanding, well-crafted food coming out of the kitchen in this tiny Eastlake spot. Head in early for chef's choice small plate happy hour ($5 each).
Come w/other adventurous eaters and plan to share. Sardines on toast is a winner, as is the Wattle and Daub rum, coffee liqueur and grapefruit cocktail.
