    The Gibson, the sleek speakeasy that treats cocktails like extensions of the fine-dining service, not lubrications for it. With some added space the waits should now be shorter for this A-List place. -- AskMen via Foursquare

    An excellent place to brunch en masse and drink bottomless mimosas. If weather permits, don’t forget about the back "plaza" featuring an old-world fountain'd, brick-enclosed bocce court. -- Thrillist via Foursquare

    Schlitz and a shot and sweet potato fries. Go on Tuesdays for half-priced tacos or at 2am for espresso shots on Saturday because why wouldn't you? -- Brightest Young Things via Foursquare

    Schnitzely goodness comes in your standard, lightly breaded Wienerschnitzel, and Jagerschnitzel. This 7000sqft bastion of Bavarian revelry fills up quickly for big events, so be sure to arrive early. -- Thrillist via Foursquare

    Perpetually packed in the evenings, but come during the afternoon to be able to grab a table easily and relax with beer and barbecue. Call ahead for the whole smoked pig head if that's your thing -- Serious Eats via Foursquare
