two friends and I had a wonderful evening at Pops last night. They arrived early and were praising the drinks (though bordering on strong?) by the time I got there-- I believe they had a Sidecar and Cosmo, paired with the crab cakes, which were apparently great!
It was my first time there, and it's such a little jewel box of a space! Really charming.
I had the fried oyster salad with bacon & sweet/sour onion (WAY oversalted, but good flavors), and the lamb chops (cooked perfectly). Also tried a friends' kobe meatloaf, which was nice and sweet and great comfort food, if a bit crumbly. The mashed potatoes were also done well.
After an absolute nightmare of a meal at 75 Chestnut the previous night, we couldn't have asked for more-- warm, efficient service and great, reasonably priced food.
