Fodor's Review

Four words: bourbon banana cream pie. Of course, there's a slew of tempting barbecue items that threaten whether you'll have room at the end of the meal. This upscale comfort-food joint neighbors Wayfare Tavern, but for our food money Wexler's is first choice. The interior is chic, almost minimalist, with one mighty interesting ceiling sculpture and a couple of red chandeliers to liven up the place. Barbecue traditionalists should come with an open mind. The crispy Scotch

eggs, fork-tender short ribs, and smoked wings (with Point Reyes blue cheese dressing) take their cues from barbecue but wander into more creative territory—chef Charlie Kleinman earned accolades while at the Hotel Palomar's late Fifth Floor restaurant. Purists might do better with Wexler's food truck parked out back on weekdays, serving pulled pork, chicken, and brisket with traditional sides such as hush puppies. The cocktails are fantastic here.
