Two of my absolute favorites: JM Curley and Row 34. They are awesome. Except that I can not actually eat at either.
Yes, I get that I can reserve at Row 34 in the future - although even that is challenging for business dinners (e.g. four to eight people a week out). Curley is on my walk home, I just ... want ... a ... burger.
Anyway, *good* for them.
Any other places that, for you, are in this category?
[I have a Row 34 strategy that I will share if you don't tell anyone. Kitchen closes (mostly, they still have e.g. oysters and lobster rolls) between lunch and dinner. Get there 4:00ish, stake space at the bar, hang until the kitchen opens. Requires dining companions willing to drink and eat oysters at 4:00.]
