Canon Restaurant Review

: Savor bites of petite pork buns in the stylish dining room or find a spot on the "secret" patio and spoon chartreuse liqueur ice cream from a Last Word Float. Either way, it's the vast collection of spirits, 130-plus pages listing selections from near and far, that drives the seasonally driven menu and décor. Seeking an obscure absinthe or that Scotch you fell in love with in Tokyo? Savvy staff, led by owner Jamie Boudreau, will track it down as guests relax in comfortable surroundings, which include vintage glassware; dark, richly colored booths; and luxury finishes. Winter warmers range from pan-roasted trout to a porcini risotto cake, or a brisket braised for 48 hours. In summer months, the kitchen showcases local greens and produce. Don't miss the updated Reuben sandwich where horseradish crème fraîche adds a kick to the house-made pastrami. Considering the adult beverages aspect of this experience, Canon is blazing trails by carbonating old-school favorites such as the Corpse Reviver and a Hemingway Daiquiri.
