After a long day at the office, a little global comfort food and a cocktail will help you to recharge for tomorrow. The bar at Bazin’s on Church is ready and waiting. From 4:30 to 6 p.m. every weekday, it offers happy hour specials on its internationally inspired small plates and boozy libations. Invite a few coworkers to join you for filet mignon sliders and buffalo cauliflower bites paired with margaritas, craft beer, or glasses of fine wine.
The main dinner menu includes similarly inventive dishes, including ample gluten-free options—the chef himself was recently diagnosed with Celiac disease, which led him to expand his gluten-free menu. Start with the truffled pistachios and the warm-spiced olives before sharing small plates such as Mama’s Meatballs over mascarpone polenta and crispy oysters with Creole aioli. Save enough room to enjoy an entree such as the maple-miso Chilean sea bass, the coconut-red curry roasted chicken, or the braised Creekstone Farms short ribs. For dessert, savor a salted caramel tart, a slice of the flourless chocolate cake, or the key lime pie with a coconut macaroon crust.
