With its locally sourced ingredients, pub-like interior and friendly staff, JM Curley (named after an early 20th-century local politico) is a let-your-hair-down release for the nearby Financial District's office crowd. The only downside is that this place is packed (and loud) during post-work hours. Arrive early or prepare to wait—Curley’s addictive caramel-popcorn-bacon snack will take the edge off your appetite. Rotating chalkboard specials include variations on the highly popular burger, a daily catch and a “square meal,” which includes protein and sides, retro style. Night owls can wait for the masses to subside and swoop in for the late-night menu, which offers a smaller, slightly cheaper version of the star burger as well as dessert “concretes”—adult shakes, such as vanilla ice-cream whipped with pretzels, bourbon-soaked blueberries and bacon.
