When the wait at nearby Lisa G's froze us out of there (over 60 minutes!), we headed over to nearby Liquids and Solids and got a bar-height table immediately. The menu is quirky, pretentious, and sometimes downright weird, but trust me, it's well worth putting...More

Liquids and Solids is a place that you don't want to miss if you appreciate truly delicious food. It's a little pricey but totally worth it. Service is great too- friendly and helpful!
