This award-winning gastropub has a friendly, folksy attitude—it’s named for a Grateful Dead jam, after all—but it’s serious about its New American menu and wine program. The bar offers all wines by the glass with some unusual pours like “orange” wine from Fruili, a region in northwest Italy. Entrees like roast duck with cherries and heritage pork with wine-stewed figs are an oenophile’s dream. Early birds and late-night snackers win at the grilled cheese bar.
