Meat & Potatoes Restaurant Review

: Meat & Potatoes’ overall ambience adheres to the welcoming neighborhood pub concept, with a cool vibe, while décor elements include the butcher diagram cow logo and a mural. Diners can opt for a burger and a beer, or go all out for Wagyu flat-iron steak or lamb-neck cassoulet. Other signatures include mussels, pappardelle and Devils on Horseback (a starter plate of bacon-wrapped dates stuffed with chorizo). Cocktails are chef-driven, artisanal creations involving barrel-aging and hand-wrought garnishes. The wine list encompasses inexpensive options as well as more costly ones. Satisfying desserts change frequently. Expect the place to be busy, bustling and high-decibel. Consider the patio --- not available for reservation --- if you're dropping in on a warm day. Come brunch time, sip spiked coffee and enjoy a plate of chicken and waffles or the country fried pork.
