Gabby Gourmet Buzz – Atticus
Atticus opens on Downing and Evans-I remember it as Fagen’s. Now several people got together to create a “tavern to table” theme. The place looks great-masculine but fun with hanger doors from Stapleton, a bar from the old airport too and a name from To Kill A Mockingbird. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner and lots of fun at the bar. Start with the charcuterie plate (build your own too), French onion soup, mussels and frites, smoked trout, wild boar chili, and spaetzle. Entrees bring house smoked salmon, cioppino, hangar steak, a delicious quail with sweet potato mash, smoked short ribs, and coffee and coriander crusted lamb loin. End with fun desserts. Service is great, and prices very affordable. The room is very welcoming, specially that seat by the fireplace! With a fun menu and great ambience, Atticus is a perfect neighborhood spot.
