Barley & Grain

The team behind wine bar Tangled Vine turns its attention to whiskey with this American restaurant, serving the dark stuff both in glasses and on plates. From the kitchen, chef Eli Kahlon (Balaboosta, Oceana) sends out elevated comfort food, with dishes like foie gras with truffles, pistachio puree and apricot-whiskey jam; "cowboy" steak with a bourbon demi-glace and tobacco onions; and free-range chicken with cilantro dip and that malt favorite, barley. The copper-topped bar is stocked with 100 whiskey varieties, hailing from the U.S., Scotland and Ireland: bourbons including 1792 Ridgemont Reserve and Pappy Van Winkle 23-year; Glenmorangie and Cragganmore Scotch; and rye such as Four Roses Yellow Label and Michter's. Along with the brown stuff, there are a dozen American craft brews on tap (Sly Fox Irish Stout, Empire White Aphro) at the 12-seat bar. Whitewashed brick walls, walnut-stained tables and leather banquettes decorate the rustic corner spot.
