PLAN DATE: MON / MAY 20
When you step into Honey Badger, you will be a bit confused, but that’s okay. In fact, that’s kind of the point. The food is like nothing you’ve ever had before, and that’s because the couple behind the cuisine sources their ingredients from a group of local foragers. The menu changes daily although you’ll usually find a selection of exotic vegetables, meat, seafood, and homemade pastas. We recommend making a reservation in advance (the space is tiny) and opting for the tasting menu. It’s a food experiment worth trying.
Next stop: Erv’s, a tiny bar with tasty drinks (that are not too expensive). The vibe is cool, with graffitied brick walls and bright, hanging lights. They have a few inventive cocktails like Big Willie Style (bourbon, spiced-honey balsamic reduction, muddled strawberries), and Señor Hemingway (tequila, mezcal, grapefruit, lime, maraschino liqueur), but if you ask the bartender to whip you up something to surprise you, he’ll do a damn good job. A coffee shop during the day, Erv’s still maintains that cozy comfort at night.
