This Ice Blocks spot by Michael Hargis (LowBrau, Block Butcher Bar) welcomes eaters of all stripes into a pretty tableau of herringbone floors, terra-cotta planters and blush-hued banquettes, to dine on chef/co-owner Brock Macdonald’s upscale live-fire fare. Carnivores, who have been reaping the flavor benefits of smoke and char since caveman times, can satisfy their meaty appetites with the hearth-kissed half chicken, while vegans can experience the pleasing richness usually reserved for more omnivorous palates—for example, the spicy nacho “cheese” in the bean-and-grain Bounty Burger is made of wood-roasted cauliflower cores. Smoke even grazes cocktails like the Tobacco Road (an Old Fashioned-style libation made with tobacco bitters and poured into a glass that has been pressed against a smoldering oak plank), which you can savor while leisurely playing on the outdoor bocce ball court at sunset.
