Prolific chef-restaurateur Andrew McConnell’s latest show-stopper is Gimlet, a refined bar and eatery in a grand 1920s building with comfy burgundy-leather booths and a house martini that’s quite possibly the best in the city. Expect perfectly executed Euro-centric dishes like tartare served table-side, oysters with seaweed butter, and dry-aged t-bone steaks. Other McConnell spots include Supernormal, a neon-lit Asian diner known for its lobster roll; the more formal Cutler & Co; wine bars Cumulus Inc. and Marion; and The Builder’s Arms, a fancy pub. Don’t leave town without eating at one of these.
