Union is a bar where you can get a fantastic dinner to go with your drinks. It’s the sister restaurant of Lardon, and while Lardon is a salumeria specializing in charcuterie spreads, Union really wants to feed you. The dishes here all have little twists that make them stand out from the usual pub food suspects — like lightly breaded fried olives filled with mortadella, or juicy lamb and pistachio meatballs swimming in a caper salsa verde. We’re also huge fans of their wonderful burger: a thick brisket and chuck patty topped with crispy onions, bone marrow aioli, and thinly sliced pickles to cut through the richness. To remind us that this is a bar, they have a long whiskey list, which they use to make a variety of creative Old Fashioneds.
