Kate Krader (@kkrader on Twitter) is Food & Wine's restaurant editor. When she tells us where to find our culinary heart's desire, we listen up.
Once upon a time, it was challenging to find restaurants and bars where you could consume truly good drinks and food in natural daylight (or twilight or moonlight). The best cocktails were in deep, dark speakeasies, accessed through unmarked entrances and phone booths. The places with good food were protected by thick walls; invariably, light wasn’t pouring in from the outdoors, it was coming from the open kitchen.
