...and I'll throw it where I want to. Here are some of your best bets for hostessing a bash.
A kitschy pub that's steeped in history. Love this spot for happy hour. Food is a-okay and crowd is non-douchey.
Biggest challenge here is saving room for dessert! Pastas are killer, brunch sandwiches rock, but sweets (hot choc, ice cream, tarts) a must
Delectable fried chicken and sides (try the corn pudding!) at lunch and dinner. Killer brunch too: Try the hearty pulled pork hash...then take a nap.
The kind of sunny shop you could hang at all day! Lots to love, from croissants, fruit tarts, sandwiches, yummy coffee, and homemade jams.
Fabulous craft beer list, but the real draw is the gorgeous, sprawling rooftop bar. Great grub to snack on too (try the monkey bread).
By far the most adorable storefront in the city. Plan to Bring your laptop & stay awhile. Pies are great, of course, but do NOT overlook the buttery biscuits.
Absolutely divine. Sandwiches are top-notch. (Varieties rotate seasonally, but make sure to try whatever type of grilled cheese they've got!) Brunch is killer too. Check out the cute back patio.
A dependable (if predictable) bbq bar/resto. Check out the pulled pork and mac n' cheese. Live tunes provide a fun atmosphere.
