Streetlight glow cascades across the brick-paved road that lies in front of Ritz Koney Bar and Grille, where a bronze sign bearing the bar’s name glimmers above the door as guests filter in and out. That same door swings open until 3 a.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, letting the vocal melodies of open-mic events and live entertainment briefly escape into the night. There’s never a cover charge to get in, leaving extra money in the pockets of patrons who stop by for a drink after work, on a date, or during a quest for the world’s crispest cocktail napkins.

No tasty bite is complete without a quality beverage to back it up. With this in mind, Gilly's pleases foodies and beer lovers alike with a well-curated menu of dishes to pair with its handcrafted microbrews, wines, and cocktails. Six types of caramel come together in Brewmaster John's Crimson King amber ale, one of many libations that can accompany vegetarian dishes such as black truffle gnocchi, fresh seafood dishes such as seared yellow fin tuna with cauliflower tabouleh, miso honey glazed wild sockeye salmon, and crab legs, and comfort food such as lobster mac 'n' cheese. A fresh oyster bar is available, and the menu spans the culinary gamut and includes many gluten-free offerings and creative small plates, all served in a casual, rustic setting.

Cherries from Michigan bedeck rainbow trout from a farm in Harrietta. Mrs. Dog’s Disappearing Mustard, from Grand Rapids, drapes across sausage made from lamb raised on a family farm in McBain. Though many of the ingredients at Bar Divani are local, the chefs draw culinary influences from around the world. They dunk Bay of Fundy salmon in walnuts and apple horseradish relish, and combine dollops of aged cheddar-cheese grits with small plates of cajun-spiced black tiger shrimp. The trio of lamb sliders prance through a range of flavors, from sweet cinnamon honey yogurt to pickled carrot and pistachio butter.

The earthy scent of simmering bourbon barbecue sauce suits the warmly hued dining room, where light dances off rich wooden accents. An illuminated wine cellar showcases 40 varieties, allowing patrons to find the ideal pairing for any dish or discretely cheat through the Wine Connoisseur Weekly crossword. Servers cut among bronze columns beneath exposed-brick walls, leaving a wake of aromas that hint at alligator and exotic grains of paradise as they visit curved booths swaddled in ornate fabrics.
