Eat and drink like a king at this Balkan restaurant on Barracks Row from chef Richard Sandoval. Wood paneling lines the walls and dim lighting sets the mood for wine-fueled conversations about anything but work. Everything on the extensive happy hour menu is just $4, including margaritas, mojitos, soups, beef and pork kebabs with roasted pepper and cheese, and drunken mussels with garlic, capers, cream and crusty bread.
