West Town Tavern (From Metromix):

This down-to-earth neighborhood spot specializes in contemporary comfort food. Owners Susan and Drew Goss have put together a straightforward menu that offers a little bit of everything, with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients featuring prominently. Desserts, made in-house, are not to be missed–especially the bourbon pecan pie. The compact wine list features selections from around the world, available both by the glass and by the bottle. The comfortable, cozy dining room features exposed brick walls, windows on two sides and a mammoth mirror on one end of the room, making the space feel much larger than it is. A front bar outfitted with retro beaded lamps and more mirrors serves the full menu for those who want a quick bite.
