This sultry but welcoming Plaza Midwood speakeasy serves a globally inspired selection of small plates. Choices are wide-ranging, from skewers and sushi rolls to Cuban and Vietnamese sandwiches, but the kitchen takes care to infuse each little gem with unique, satisfying flavors. The dancing tuna rolls, with jalapeños and two spicy mayos, are highly recommended if you like heat.
With no reservations, the wait can be maddening – 187 minutes for us! But they use the NoWait app (http://nowait.com), so you can pass that time in a few breweries.
