    Take the bar’s margarita. Though the menu lists 4 ingredients, there are actually 22 that make up the drink. Multiple citrus elements, shrubs, even a habanero salt foam are used to build layers of flavor and keep the drinks very consistent.

    Comfort reigns at Stephanie Izard’s Randolph Street diner and when the weather is pleasant the rooftop’s tables and seating is even more in demand than the restaurant’s booths.
