At a self-service gastropub, do you self-tip? The fun here includes tables with beer taps, wine-dispensing machines (think soda fountains, but grapier), and pitcher-sized flasks. It’s less kitschy and more full-service than this sounds—it’s by the Commander’s Palace folks, after all. A second room is highlighted (literally—and strikingly) by a wall of white LED-lit bottles. Drinks are pedigreed and skillfully composed; food can be hit-or-miss (shrimp pinchos are a hit). Good happy-hour deals and burlesque-themed Legs and Eggs brunch.
