If you live near the Broadway T stop, then hopefully Moonshine 152 is already your neighborhood go-to. If it’s not, give it a shot and bring friends so you can order a bunch of stuff and make up for lost time. This dark little restaurant has a menu that’s hard to pin down, covering everything from grilled stuffed avocado and fried chicken and waffles, to Korean barbecue tacos and duck liver dirty rice. A lot of places that cast such a wide net fail to really hit on anything, but just everything is at least good here, with a few things (like that dirty rice) that are great.
