Fodor's Review

Underground, convivial, and very lively, this speakeasy meets Mississippi juke joint also has a hint of American diner thanks to the awesome Americana menu. This spot is named after the man who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. Co-owners Aaron Sandow, chef Sam Worrall-Thompson, and Gareth Lewis traveled the world to get the vibe just right, and it shows. Craft beer from the U.S. and Australia dominate the drinks menu, but if beer isn't your thing, try the spiked milk shakes or the various cocktails on offer.
