Bandit Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant & décor: High meets low at DineAmic Hospitality’s casual venue on Restaurant Row. Black awnings, a slim patio and a neon sign mark the entrance, which leads into the shotgun space. White lights hang over a long exhibition kitchen and bar flanked by olive bar stools. Black and white tile and oversized pop culture signs lend nostalgia.

Likes: The come-as-you-are vibe and well-edited casual menu.
Dislikes: The front patio is a bit tight.

Food & Drinks: The menu is both playful and sophisticated with a mix of American staples and global tastes. From Nashville hot chicken tenders to Carolina pulled pork with signature vinegar sauce and a Philly cheesesteak, the food appeals to the regional food lover, too. For lighter fare, try the layered-so-colorfully chicken shawarma salad with a dollop of creamy lemon tahini yogurt. Late-nighters love the crispy tater tots and Disco waffle fries. Go nostalgic for dessert; the house-made cherry pop tart boasts crunchberry ice cream, unicorn glitter and sprinkles. As for liquid treats, make it an endless summer with rosé or a smooth Monte Rio Syrah.
