Birch and Barley – For solo diners & a killer meal

When I am wandering down 14th Street looking for a quiet restaurant and a great meal, I keep my eyes out for the garage door exterior. When entering this rustic restaurant, I immediately feel relaxed by the dark decor and exposed brick. If you are travelling solo, grab a seat at the bar in the back or ask if there is room at the kitchen table to watch the best at work.

Grab a beer from one of their 555 options, which is an added benefit from their upstairs neighbor ChurchKey, a beer connoisseur’s dream. If you’re not in a beer mood, order a full-bodied red wine, Burrata, Bucatini Cacio e Pepe and enjoy the dim environment while relaxing from the day.

Not only will you have an amazing meal with an ever changing menu, but the service is top-notch with educated staff that is ready to offer recommendations on libations and kitchen favorites. They also make an effort to accommodate dietary restrictions and choices.
