The Shed at Glenwood Restaurant Review: Owners Todd Martin and Cindy Shera have established a sexy, high-energy, neighborhood-friendly spot that draws its patrons from all over the city. High ceilings, bar seating and generous windows affording views of the street scene set the stage. Begin with an exploration of small plates and sliders. The roasted beet salad is a mainstay on the frequently changing menu, ably handled by chef Todd Richards. For your next burger feast, try the man-size two-hander with its crisp onions and cheddar. We like the duck that comes out of this kitchen, no matter its specific preparation. Go lighter with mussels, available in appetizer and main plate sizes. Local ingredients, from meats to vegetables, are featured. Chef Richards honors the late Southern chef Edna Lewis by using her cornbread recipe. Vegetarians may choose among the sides to compose a four-vegetable plate. For brunch, the Benedict perches the classic poached egg on fried green tomatoes, accompanied by house-made biscuits. The well-chosen wine list offers bottles and by-the-glass options that are out of the box, making this a good destination wine bar. Wine-focused events are frequent. For dessert, think about the apple cobbler.
