Named for the German family that ran a hardware store here for the greater part of the last century, The Westendorff channels art deco vintage. Globe lighting casts a warm spell over a W-shaped marble bar as gingham-and-denim outfitted staff hustle to serve you craft cocktails and housemade sodas. Smaller booths afford intimacy, but it’s fun to swivel at the old-school counter which really buzzes at happy hour. The Westendorff promised us daily brunch, and it delivered, serving up smoked trout and oysters with leek hash browns, popular egg sandwiches, duck confit, and a killer dry-aged burger. Evenings bring locavore-sourced, internationally-influenced entrées, the most popular being the caveman-portioned pork chop, but don’t overlook smaller players like Ace Basin mussels in Malaysian curry, or Wagyu beef tartare with a fried quail egg. Local catch, fresh salads, and revolving desserts round out this stylish venue where you can either dress up or go casual to suit your mood. —Allston McCrady Dish, Winter 2016
