Angler is from the people behind Saison, and while the name makes it seem seafood-focused, your carnivore friends will be happy here too. The menu has interesting things prepared in familiar ways, like blowfish tails cooked like salt and pepper shrimp and rabbit done hot chicken-style. A lot of the menu is raw too, from antelope tartar to a selection of oysters that come with sauces and vinegars delivered in what look like your grandmother’s perfume bottle collection.
They say this is their casual restaurant, which is kind of like Korn saying that their new album is a lot softer, but once you get over the people dressed as butlers appearing behind you to take drink orders, it’s pretty easy to unwind here and have fun. Food here is served family-style, so make sure you come on a date or with a group.
