If it’s one of those Sundays when you haven’t left your apartment, you have no plans to do so, but you decide you should really be out in the world, we’d suggest you head to Barawine. It’s the kind of place where drinking a glass or three alone is a very nice activity, and on Sundays, they also have live jazz. This place is split into two sections, with a long bar on one side, and a small dining room serving a big menu of French-ish American food on the other. It’s light and bright, and would also be great for an early-in-the-game-date on the bar side or a friend group catch up over dinner in the dining room.
