  • Honey Road
  • Jericho Café & Tavern
  • Leunig’s Bistro & Café
  • Misery Loves Co.

  • Blue Paddle Bistro

Blue Paddle Bistro — Artsy décor at this longtime locals' favorite includes a wooden canoe suspended over the bar. Chef Phoebe Bright's food is inventive — think coffee-crusted pork tenderloin and crab ravioli.
