The Girl & The Fig
Specializing in French food with a modern twist, The Girl & The Fig is a buzzy spot where you’ll need to plan ahead to grab a prime weekend table, but locking yourself in a couple weeks ahead is absolutely worth it. The pastis-scented moules frites are a Parisian dream, and the burger is one of the best in town. They also offer a three-course bistro menu for $48, with an additional $20 for a wine pairing—it’s the perfect way to splurge while not digging too deep in your pockets. Skip the indoor seating unless the weather demands it: the large private patio tucked away from the street is the perfect place to escape the weekend crowds.
