Get this: 48-hour bacon. That should be all we need to say. That Chef Tony Baker takes thick, broad slices and barely disturbs them with heat, but keeps it up for two long days to bring out a smoky, rough-hewn, elegant sweetness tells you a lot about this favorite spot. It’s like Joe Montana connecting with Jerry Rice, but much better. And even then, a seasonal and simple presentation of grilled peaches may be enough to take your mind off the bacon. And those are just starters. There is sustainable seafood, prime beef, duck breast, and more.
