Hard to say whether this shabby-chic tavern is best for eating or drinking. Let's say eating, since it earned a Michelin star for its beautifully cooked comfort foods such as vanilla brioche French toast for breakfast, wild-boar sloppy joes for lunch and fried chicken and duck-fat biscuits for dinner. There's a whole menu of juicy small plates and whiskeys, too. No reservations.

Luckily, all those whiskeys ensure you can drink well while waiting. Belly up at the bar for a house-curated flight or a flight of your own making. A six-room inn fills the tavern's 2nd floor.
