Not all the exciting dining around town is centered on the peninsula. Woodford F&B shares its building with a dry cleaner and a tanning salon, but the kitchen at this vinyl-boothed, formica-countertopped, family-friendly neo-diner turns out dishes every bit as ambitious as any reservations-only joint downtown. The menu’s full of comforting brasserie options such as steak and fries, luscious deviled eggs, and a seriously rich croquet madame, but you can also keep it simple with a burger or bibb salad. Feels like a neighborhood place, but attracts diners from all over town.
