Fodor's Expert Review Irving Street Kitchen

$$$ Pearl District Modern American Fodor's Choice

You might come to this hip Pearl District restaurant set inside a gorgeously transformed warehouse building just because you heard about the rich butterscotch pudding with roasted-banana caramel and peanut butter bonbons (it's available to go, sold in its own adorable canning jar); but chances are, once you see the exposed-brick-and-wood-beam walls, Edison bulb chandeliers, inviting central bar, and patio seats on a converted loading dock, you'll want to stay. And you'll be glad you did. The well-executed contemporary American dinner and brunch fare includes diver scallops with fried-pork confit and preserved-lemon curry and a smoked-brisket-and-fried-egg sandwich with pepper pickles and cheesy Cajun fries, which reflect chef Sarah Schafer's creative, if rather decadent, hand in the kitchen. Wines by the glass are dispensed from state-of-the-art taps, ensuring freshness.
