Those shrimp look like they were once an item. Their legacy will live on.
The Mermaid Inn has the best happy hour, period. (redundant?)
We’re talking about $1 East Coast oysters, $5 Pork Slap and $7 glasses of wine. The interior is beautiful with floor to ceiling windows in the front and consistent oceanic decor. Whoever does the restaurant’s branding does it well. You’ll notice The Mermaid Inn’s logo just about everywhere.
As you slurp down your 13th oyster and crack open another brew while Fake Plastic Trees plays in the background, you’ll pause and realize that it was totally worth ditching work early to make this happy hour.
Not pictured are the delicious miniature fish tacos and fried calamari.
After watching Nancy Lee’s Pig Heaven featured on the Travel Channel I was left with no choice but to walk two blocks for this pleasant experience.
The pictured spare ribs are the go-to dish at Pig Heaven, and rightfully so. The glaze has a nice tang to it while the meat is tender and falls right off the bone with each bite. If you’re not big on pork, don’t fret; Nancy comes correct with all of your favorite classic Chinese dishes.
Come here on a weeknight to expect an open table and quick service.
One will do the trick. Two will definitely do the trick.
Elsa is a new favorite. Its intimate, yet casual, atmosphere sets the mood for a great night. Elsa’s interior is a thing of beauty. The bartenders are kind folk who take the time to help you decide on the ideal drink. If it’s not on the menu, they’ll work with you to figure something out. They’re on your team.
Elsa also doubles as a custom tailor. If you stay long enough you may end up leaving looking like Don Draper.
The mashed potatoes and spinach are hiding underneath that finely prepared piece of meat.
The pictured fish dish is perfectly portioned leaving you with room to crush an app and close up on a light dessert. If you’re not too well versed in wine speak just share your thoughts with one of the waitresses; they’re very helpful and non judgmental.
