We took advantage of the dwindling heat of the year by swooping up a couple servings at the self serve stations at Swirl.

Balance was not our motive in our impulse combos:

... but they hit the spot with their crunchy, sweet and tart cooling qualities.

Pulpo ($10.00):

... pulsed with parmesan and sun-dried tomato confit in a ‘pus ‘paccio at Ataula:

... where we dug into black bits of calamares negros ($8.00):

... signed in its own ink in a tempura twist on these squibs of squid.

House cured salmon ($8.00):

... was sweetened with honey and enriched with mascarpone on a tile of tasty toast while an order of their house made coca bread ($4.00):

... rubbed with tomato and olive oil was good for dunking in the garlicky runoff of the punchy prawns ($9.00):

Rossejat ($34.00):

... subbed toasted noodles for rice in a paella-esque pan of chicken, chorizo and pepper. Garlic alioli infused this pasta portion completing our swell snacky supper at this recent-rant.

We will have to loop back to check out more of their enticing menu.

Chevre and sun dried tomatoes, white beans dandruffed with parmesan, pork rilliettes, smoked salmon spread and caponata capped the selection of crostini ($5.50):

... during our Happy Hour visit to Tabla.

We cooled ourselves with a couple of drafts ($3.00 each) as we chomped on these delectable open facers before moving on to Fra’ Mani meats ($5.00):

Pickled spears of ‘sparagus and whole grain mustard set off the swell salumi sided by Blacksheep, San Tumas and Perrydale cheeses ($7.50):

Radiatore ($5.00):

... had house made spirals of ‘sta and sausage with brocolli melded with mozzarella and tomato. Tabla’s early eats were top notch tucker at a tiny tariff.

A selection of sashimi ($33.00):

... contained some swell sake, maguro, hirame and tai at the recently debuted Daruma.

Ginger and green onion capped bincho ($6.00):

... and shiso-lined uni ($8.00):

... and smoked ikura ($7.00):

... were nifty nigiri noshage served up by a friendly staff.

This small sushi spot’s maritime morsels an eyeful of excellent edibles.

We mothed towards Roman Candle and nabbed a almond blueberry torta ($5.00):

This marzipan marvel with smurfy stuffing suspended a substantial sum of butter making each bite a gilded, nutty, shortbready sensation lightened by fruit.

The draw of this bakery keeps us busting through the doors whenever we’re within chomping distance.

Kale was the common de-nom in our brunch dishes at P&Q’s Market:

... where a fried egg lounged on lacinato ($8.00):

... and a hash ($10.00):

... of house made bacon and brisket was bound with an over easy.

Paddles of sourdough supplemented the nest of Ceasar-toga’ed tangle of tang while the corny collaboration of beef and spuds was a swell swined serving.

The apple pie ($5.00):

... was good topped with melted Cheddar but the fruit was slightly firmer than our preference and it’s difficult to compete with Woodlawn Bakery’s wedges just down the street.

This market:

... with meals was a good grub hub. We’ll have to return to check out their lunch offerings.

The Kingdom of Roosevelt is transitioning to another domain and in its place is Trinket.

This new nook is a brunchy business where a sunnysided sausage hash ($9.00):

... had squared spuds starching up meaty morsels sauced by embryonic tonic.

Polenta with eggs ($9.00):

... got lightness from lettuces and ‘mami from mushrooms in a mush-lange of savory satisfaction before we split a waffle ($10.00):

This crisped cloud of crannies cradled blueberries capped with whipped cream and roasted nectarines. Honey stood in for maple moisture in this cinnamon dusted dessert to our midday meal.

We will have to bobble back to Trinket for more breakfasty bites.

We knew we were in trouble when a pink-togaed party engulfed our table at The Station.

Sipping on our whiskied “power sour” ($6.75) and bourbon mule ($7.25):

...we took in the roamin revelers with a plate of deviled eggs ($6.50):

... capped by a smattering of bacon and a big mac-esque burger ($11.50):

... with sweet potato fries ($1.50 supplement). The thin double patties did not lend themselves to succulence in this standard issue stack. The tubers were thick cut and starchy rather than the thin version that is our preference but the wings ($10.50):

... went with the bingoed backdrop of our visit.

The Station may not be our hub of transportation in the future, but it made for a distracting detour.

Cracklingly crunchy crusted fried chicken with red beans and rice and collards ($8.00):

... were soul soothing sustenance from Kousin’s Kitchen. Moist, meat middled the seasoned sealant to this clucker while a hefty helping of buttoned up collards and beans and rice finished us off.

This cluck truck was just the ticket for our early supper.

Laughs from a hen party sporting mini, glitter-crusted hats supplemented the soundtrack at the Gold Dust Meridian Lounge:

... where we took advantage of the last 15 minutes of happy hour (ending at 8 p.m. daily).

Soy sauced, garlic green beans ($5.00):

... smoked jalapeno wings ($6.00):

and a tempura halibut sandwich ($9.00):

... with crisp fries were all solid belly ballast alongside a couple of bourbon ‘bibes.

The “Secretariat” ($8.00) with lemon and elderflower liqueur and an “Old Grandad Fashion” ($7.00):

... with orange bitters and soda were stiff sips at this dim den of drinking.
