With patio seating, a stylish tavern upstairs and a cozy subterranean dining space below, Russell House has a place for everyone. In summer months, sip a cocktail from their list of classics and enjoy the prime people-watching location of the patio and the breezy open windows of the upper level. In chillier months, slip downstairs for pan-seared arctic char ($25), slow-cooked chicken ($19) or a grass-fed burger ($13). Russell House is also a popular brunch destination, serving up favorites like eggs benedict ($12) and stuffed brioche french toast ($12) alongside more inventive options such as a slow-roasted pork loin with hoisin-ginger sauce ($12) and a “dirty” caesar salad made with black kale ($9). Anyone looking for classier late-night fare will love their $1 oysters, available every night of the week after 11pm.
