Trains are known to be the everyman's mode of transport. At the locomotive-themed eatery The Third Rail, the kitchen straddles the line between familiar tavern and upscale gastropub cuisine. They serve Black Angus burgers and pulled pork sandwiches alongside sautéed calves liver and duck confit. Brunch specials such as coconut shrimp with housemade apricot sauce save diners from having to cook, so they can spend their Sunday mornings the traditional way: training parrots to sing Pachelbel's "Canon."
