In addition to serving good food, Jim and Neesie in the Generator Hostel makes great cocktails. This Mid-Beach spot is home to some of the best margaritas in the city, which go very well with their oysters with cucumber mint mignonette and the excellent crispy octopus too. It’s also pretty laid-back here, and feels more like a dim living room in case you’d like to actually hear the person you’re eating with.
