If you thought the Palomar was hard to get in to, one of their other places Evelyn’s Table might as well be surrounded by an electrified fence and a 14th century moat. This kitchen table experience only two doors down from the Palomar itself is in the basement of their pub, The Blue Posts. There’s just eleven seats at the bar, and there’s an irreverent and friendly attitude, so be prepared to get friendly with the chef who’ll be cooking everything right in front of your face. The food is southern European, and you can expect freshly caught fish and hearty pastas, but if the pork jowl or the cuttlefish ragoût are on the menu you should absolutely order them.
