The young crowd may love this American joint for its plaid-wearing, mustache-sporting servers (not to mention the reclaimed wood and Edison bulbs), but chef Justin Brunson also delivers some seriously good, upscale food. At lunchtime Old Major transforms into the more casual Royal Rooster, a fried chicken pop-up with a limited menu of sandwiches, salads, and duck fat french fries. Come dinner, the pork-centric restaurant serves more thoughtful fare, like a "Nose to Tail" plate with kielbasa, ribs, and confit belly or a seared foie gras with a cherry gastrique. But not everything is all about the pig; you'll also find delectable pretzel knots, on-point vegetable sides, and sophisticated scallops.
