Bites Asian Tapas

Despite the cutesy names (can anyone seriously order "sexy shrimp" with a straight face?) the pan-Asian joint is a better-than-decent spot for satisfying tonkotsu ramen, avocado tempura folded into pillowy buns and fiery garlic-chile edamame. The cocktails, like the Gentlemen’s Wood, a mango-laced Old Fashioned, are easy-drinking, and the cozy fireplace table is ideal for freezing nights (so's the spicy miso ramen.)

Friends and I recently had an amazing time at Bites for brunch - I feel like we stumbled onto a secret that not many people know about (and I kinda don't want them to know!). They have a bottomless mimosa package (although the vibe was definitely classier than the typical drunken messes that bottomless can create) and a back patio that is perfect as summer approaches. 

The food was also excellent. My chicken & waffles are pictured below - that green waffle was amazing. My table also started with spicy crab rangoon (rave reviews), samosas (my favorite), and garlic edamame (a HUGE portion). I definitely plan to return... and bring more friends so we can try even more food!
