The Whale Wins

The beauty of The Whale Wins is the beauty of The Whale Wins—it's a sunny palace of good vibes, with an especially charming patio. Only catch is, the food isn’t as excellent as what we’re used to having at that restaurant group's other establishments, like The Walrus And The Carpenter or Bateau. (Which is to say, it’s pretty good by most standards.)

The menu has a ton of vegetables, and the portions are so small that you’ll spending a lot of money only to likely be hungry in an hour—but we can't deny that this place works incredibly well for a light snack and glass of wine. Get the (very tasty) roasted half chicken if you want to eat something that doesn’t grow in the ground, and always start with bread from Sea Wolf.
