"A perennial favorite," Jimmy Bannos Jr.'s "always lively" Mag Mile gastropub "delights the palate" with "outstanding," "innovative" Mediterranean small plates featuring "an abundance of pork" ( "fried pig ears, anyone?" ) paired with a "robust wine list;" though its "popularity" and no-rezzies policy can lead to "interminable waits," most agree the "magic" is worth "braving the crowds" – and the "squeeze" of communal seating.
