Unlike recommended solitary activities such as filling diaries with embarrassing secrets, running as a third-party candidate, and juggling flaming chainsaws, J. BLACK'S menu is designed for socializing, with many easily shared tapas-style options and a daily happy hour from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (and all day Sunday). Bring culinary cohorts to enjoy Texas Kobe sliders ($13), a marriage of Kobe-beef cheeseburgers and dijon mustard with pickles, ketchup, and hand-cut fries. The shrimp ceviche ($12) pleases crowds with tiger shrimp, grape tomatoes, red onion, avocado, piquant serrano peppers, and chopped cilantro in a spicy lime sauce with tortilla strips. J. BLACK'S also offers a medley of 12-inch pizzas, including the margherita ($10), barbecue pulled pork ($12), crab and portobello ($14), and the Stefano (applewood-smoked bacon, goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, shallots, and arugula, $14).
