The Shed at Glenwood Restaurant Review: This neighborhood-friendly, high-energy spot by owners Todd Martin and Cindy Shera draws patrons from all over the city. Bar seating, high ceilings and generous windows affording views of the street scene set the stage; the patio is well shielded from the elements. Local ingredients, from meats to vegetables, are featured on the frequently changing menu; Springer Mountain chicken is among them. Begin with an exploration of small plates and sliders. Roasted beet salad is a mainstay. For your next burger feast, try the man-size two-hander with its crisp onions and cheddar. We like the duck regardless of its specific preparation. The Shed 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 crab meat with hollandaise. 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. For dessert, consider whatever cobbler is available.
