The Stocking Frame makes for a great spot to watch the game alone at the bar or your date in a secluded booth. The giant, high-ceilinged space (converted from a clothing factory) is designed beautifully, and is a perfect last-minute reservation that doesn’t actually look like a last-minute reservation. The food won’t change your life, but it’s solid and perfect for sharing (get the bone marrow). Add a few cocktails and you’ve got a good, low-stress dinner sorted.
