Inspired by New York City’s West 28th Street, the cradle of America’s popular music industry, this industrial, U-shaped space takes its aesthetic cues from a midtown Manhattan jazz club: a phonograph and rotary payphone evoke the 1930’s, and naked light bulbs hang above the bar. Food caters to third-culture kids craving upscale Americana (creator Nathalia Bernhard grew up in New Jersey): take the pitch-perfect Aloha burger, which oozes with potato-chip crumble and house-made pineapple chutney. Start with the Summer Picnic salad—sweet watermelon with sharp, crumbled feta—and save room for the chunky apple pie, just as good as grandma’s. As for the soundtrack, classic Motown hits set people’s feet tapping, while Friday-night Acoustic Alley events showcase unplugged cover bands.
