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.

What To Order

Pig's ear
Octopus 1
Eggplant caponata

Insider Tip

The seemingly endless wine list is easily navigated with help from the well-educated staff.
