Why It’s Hot: Michael Schulson and Groundswell Design Group took a boring corporate plaza and turned it into an open-air greenery-filled oasis of food, drink and fun. It’s exactly what Independence Mall was missing.
Must-Order: Fried cheese curds ($5), BLT ($6), milkshake ($5).
Insider Tip: Nearly 75% of the seating has overhead shelter, so no need to change plans when it rains. Also, if you’re looking for a novel spot to host your next event, there’s actually an indoor-outdoor private dining area with patio available near the back of the space.
