Compass Rose

Perfect For: Casual Weeknight Dinner Date Night Small Plates

Mixing two great things together doesn’t always result in something with twice the greatness (case in point: vodka gummy bears), but for Compass Rose, it does. Except Compass Rose didn’t stop at two things. The menu is full of street foods from around the world, including Hawaiian poké, Argentinian asado, and Georgian khapchapuri (a cheesy bread bowl). The dishes are all great separately, but they go well together too, so don’t be afraid to get five different cuisines on the table.

The intimate dining room, with velvet curtains, beaded pillows, and fabric draped from the ceiling, adds to the “Around The World In 40 Days” vibes. Try it for date night, a catch-up with friends, or get a seat at the bar.
