The owners behind the hugely successful La Carnita taqueria took a different approach with their second outpost, Home of the Brave, which celebrates all things Americana. Chef Alex Hamilton's menu pays tribute to regional classic American dishes, from Southern barbecue to diner grub. His signature plate (pictured) is the Kentucky fried handshake sandwich, juicy chicken thigh served with the fried foot. Not to worry, the appendage comes off easily, and is crispy and delicious. The drink menu has also become a sensation, featuring a rotating cocktail list curated by guest bartenders from the US.
Signature dishes: handshake sandwich (pictured above), beets, johnny cakes with smoked trout.
