They have the best soup dumplings in town. Try the Xiao Long Bao Soup Dumplings and the Beef & Scallion crispy pancake is a must.

This is such a unique Australian concept. It is homey and comfortable with a small dining room. Check out the Seafood Curry Laksa and the Sausage Rolls.

This is a super hip, Korean concept dressed up by a high-end chef. These are not your normal Korean dishes, but something much more. You'll find crispy rice batter Fried Chicken with a Spicy Soy Vinaigrette; Beef Tartare with Ramp Aioli; and our absolute favorite crazy simple dessert -- Honey Butter Chips. They are potato chips tossed with hot honey butter.

This is a favorite spot of ours for so many reasons. There are four things to do at The Wayland for a perfect experience.
1. Go on a week night when they have a live band.
2. Go really crazy late after work, because they serve food and drink until 4am, every night.
3. Order the Kale Margarita.
4. Order the Milk & Honey (burrata with unfiltered extra virgin olive oil, raw honey, smoked pepper, and sea salt). Get it with a side of Fried Fingerling Potatoes with rosemary aioli.

Amazing chef, amazing service, and amazing food. Sit inside where you can see into the open kitchen and check out the wood-fired oven. Super hot and interesting techniques from the wood oven.
