We’re partial to any place that puts almost everything on a piece of bread, which means we’re big fans of the tartines here. There are a couple of Blue Dahlia locations around town, but our favorite the East 11th thanks to the greenhouse-looking space. The plants not only provide lots of oxygen (key for eating ridiculous quantities of food), but also make for a zen atmosphere for a casual brunch.
Blue Dahlia Bistro is permanently closed.
