The Dive Bar & Grill’s chefs plate up a menu of shareable appetizers, steak, and seafood in a friendly, relaxed setting, replete with jewel-toned curtains and funky pendant lights. An appetizer of hand-pulled barbecue chicken hoecakes dresses up cornmeal flatbreads with candied jalapeño aioli, fresh cilantro, and red onion slivers, and the tuna tartare’s trio of raw preparations fuel philosophical debates on which came first, the fish or the roe. For main acts, five pan-seared jumbo scallops take a dip in roasted poblano cream sauce, and the 12-ounce cowboy rib eye rides high atop a saddle of cheddar-parmesan grits. Friends can nosh cozily amidst the dining room’s dark wood tables and low lighting, or head onto the outdoor patio where sunlight bounces off flatware and feeds ferns on lunch dates.
The Dive Bar & Grill
The staff at The Dive Bar & Grill work hard to cultivate a versatile, laid-back atmosphere, accommodating large parties of revelers and small, relaxed groups of friends. With a friendly, unrushed attitude, servers present the eatery’s duo of flexible menus—one for the bar and another for the restaurant. At the bar, diners pair beer and wine with chorizo-seasoned potato croquettes, seafood-stuffed quesadillas, and strawberry-studded salads served in portions designed for sharing with friends and gregarious diners at the next table. Meanwhile, The Dive Bar & Grill’s restaurant menu plays to a variety of tastes with a crispy pan-fried beet slider, glazed and grilled cuts of mahi mahi, and seafood pasta perfumed with precious saffron.
