I know this isn't a restaurant, but you can order the whole FC menu from 5-10 p.m., every day, besides Laszlo's own bar-bites menu. Who knew? i didn't. After a snafu in our Kronnerburger plans, with visiting Ch-er grayelf and her hubby in tow, plus local Ch-er escargot3 and her fab companion joining in a bit later, we went for happy hour Sunday evening. we tried duck fat cracklings (tasty but a little too five-spicey for me, would have preferred them more salty); a chunky brandade with toasted bread (perfectly salty and went great with our Body Heat cocktails (tito's jalapeño-infused vodka, fresh lime & cointreau - a perfectly tart/snappy cocktail)); the crispy pork belly (great); the carpaccio with tarragon and sauce verte (paper thin, almost looked like stains on the dish, with wonderfully crispy match-stick fries); and house-cured sardines with roasted peppers, manchego and broccoli rabe crostini. Great food in an informal setting, with good tunes, and a hockey game playing on the wall for the enjoyment of grayelf's "auxiliary stomach". This place needs to become a regular for me. (ridiculous, as i live around the corner, that it's taken me this long.)
