The York Restaurant Review

: Ryan Ballinger, previously a bartender at The Edendale Grill, opened "Highland Park's neighborhood gastropub" in the former Wild Hare space. High brick walls are lined with cast-iron bathtub feet and a huge photograph of New York billboards. Glass liquor shelving divides the room, which is ringed by a stylish bar made from Santa Maria, a South American hardwood. An eclectic menu is detailed on a large chalkboard. Fried garbanzos with lemon and cayenne offer a pop to start. Beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips have a satisfying texture but taste a bit bland, and can’t be resuscitated by the house-made tartar sauce. The Cuban grilled pork sandwich is dry, even with mustard aïoli and Gruyère. A better option is the simple steak and fries with garlicky chimichurri. We are especially fond of a dish that shows up as a weekly special: a quintet of cider-glazed New Zealand lamb chops with Black Mission figs and nutmeg-scented rice studded with crushed cashews. To drink, draught beers are highlighted by Craftsman Real Ale on cask, while the "Kicking Mule" cocktail combines bourbon, sour lemon and ginger beer. For dessert, there is a simple fruit cobbler.
