Fodor's Expert Review Alchemy Cafe

$$ Murphys American Fodor's Choice
A casual spot on the eastern edge of town with yellow walls and artsy French posters, Alchemy serves sturdy comfort food like braised lamb shank over fried polenta, drunken noodles with shrimp and Asian vegetables, and grilled Atlantic salmon. Pork belly, fried calamari with roasted jalapeños, and mussels with fries are among the starters that pair well with a bourbon rosemary sour specialty cocktail or perhaps the Alchemy Bloody Mary, hopped up with a splash of Firestone Pivo Pilsner.
