Pitchfork Pretty has a few things going for it - good American food, a patio, and a pleasant space - but the best part about it is the shareability. Come with a date or your parents to try a little of everything like cornbread with honey butter, fried chicken, and potato gnocchi. And if you're not into having to take a vote on what to order, there's also a great banchan option for $34 a person on Sundays and Mondays that comes with a variety of sides and barbecue meats to keep all to yourself.
