A lively bar-restaurant isn't just the perfect place to practice close-up magic on unsuspecting patrons; it's also a great spot to meet friends and share Burton Gilliam gossip. Make hunger disappear with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of eclectic New American fare and signature drinks at 25 Kitchen & Bar.
Peer through the open-interactive kitchen as Executive Chef Steve Brechting and his culinary squadron concoct an eclectic array of sharable plates and piquant entrees, melding New American cuisine with dollops of international flavor. An extensive menu helps combat thumb twiddling by nudging grabby fingers toward graspable grub such as the handmade duck spring rolls ($8) or the crab-stuffed portabella mushrooms ($9). The classy lobster macaroni dons bowtie pasta and a tasty tuxedo of boursin cream sauce ($22) before it schmoozes the sweet chicken sandwich ($9) and Asian chicken wrap ($8). In keeping with Newton's third law of baseball rosters, the restaurant and bar's lineup of wood-fired pizzas, signature cocktails, and draft beers come in clutch-hitting clusters of 25. Relax on the seasonal outdoor patio and pair a Mediterranean pizza ($11) with a black raspberry White Russian ($9) or mojito ($8).
Set in a casual, bi-level dining space, 25 Kitchen & Bar maintains a comfortable and lively atmosphere thanks to its friendly, energetic staff, frequent live music, and recliners embedded with defibrillators.
- With its large patio and great location, this would be a great place to gather a large group of friends for drinks, pizza sharing and people watching. – SheFed, HeFedSheFed
- I have never had a bad meal here. The vegetable sides are always perfectly cooked, and very fresh. The mashed potatoes are amazing. The pasta is always cooked to a perfect al dente, and covered in a delicious sauce. – ryan, Urbanspoon
