2014 Winner: Kirkland Tap & Trotter

For his second restaurant, Tony Maws traded Craigie’s haute technique and white tablecloths for a wood-fired grill and a neighborhood vibe. The result? Instant success for little sib KT&T, filled to the rafters with merry revelers feasting on curry-rubbed lamb ribs and smoked fish rillettes, washing them down with Ommegang, Victory ale and Schlitz. The music isn’t up too high: It’s just a chorus of folks enjoying themselves. Those bringing appetites bigger than their budgets can partake in the nightly changing neighborhood menu, with three courses for $35.
