Fodor's Expert Review Au Cheval
A menu packed with burgers, fries, and chopped liver might sound like your classic dive, but Au Cheval is no greasy spoon. Exposed brick, dim lighting, and antique-inspired fixtures give off a sultry feel, and rich takes on classic American diner dishes like crispy fries with Mornay sauce, garlic aioli, and fried farm egg, and griddled bratwurst with smashed potatoes and roasted-garlic gravy satisfy your cravings. Don't be fooled by the $11 price tag on the single cheeseburger—it's gigantic, and totally delicious. Like a good diner, the restaurant is open late, but with the added bonus of a solid craft beer and cocktail list to carry you through the night.
