I'm meeting a buddy of mine next Friday, and we're probably going to hop around to a few resto's/bars for drinks and food. I think he wants to try Gayle, I'm also thinking Barclay Prime for sliders. Where else should we hit?
Could be somewhat trendy, could also be "dive-ish." The only thing we're not looking for is formal.
Also, we'd like to go places that have pretty decent access in the bar areas, we won't want to wait for more than a half hour or so to be able to get a seat and order food.
