Restaurant Details

The Alembic is not to everyone's tastes: too loud/too hipster/too much of a bar/too fancy/ew, bone marrow? But in addition to stellar cocktails (one favorite, the Southern Exposure, contains gin, mint, and celery juice), the kitchen puts out some of the most unabashedly creative food in this city: jerk-spiced grilled duck hearts, seared albacore sliders with veal bacon, pickled quail eggs. It's American bistro menu is seasonal as well as science-friendly, and wildly affordable to boot. Some nights, the chefs put out a $35, three-course prix-fixe dinner. Cocktails extra, of course.
