The Misfit is located uncomfortably close to the 3rd St. Promenade tourist hellzone, but when it comes to this laid-back restaurant, we grin and bear it. The food is good, the crowd is full of locals, and the cocktails are the best in downtown. Also, there are free cookies and a Happy Hour from noon - 7pm daily.
