When you want a 30-minute throwback to a simpler time, back when people tucked short-sleeved button-downs into khakis, go to Holiday Snack Bar. It’s been serving a short menu focused on griddle-cooked burgers and housemade pies since 1948, and the circular bar is still a good spot to pull up a seat, drink a milkshake, and temporarily forget about the sparkling Jordans and matcha ice cream back home.
