Perhaps 2018’s most hyped restaurant opening, this easygoing concept comes from barbecue wizard Aaron Franklin and lauded Uchi chef Tyson Cole. Now that the initial hullabaloo has died down, it feels like the sort of neighborhood hangout they probably intended — the type of place to get a leisurely draft cocktail and snack (the kettle corn with brisket burnt ends is to die for) during happy hour or a date night destination that is sure to put some stars in your sweetheart’s eyes.
