Brainchild of Coi owner Daniel Patterson, Plum is a great place to go for a lively atmosphere and original food with plenty of international influence. The hip, modern space is welcoming, and Patterson’s goal of providing high-concept, fine-dining cuisine at affordable prices is executed brilliantly. Under new chef Manfred Wrembel, the menu is a bit more approachable and less fussy, if still spiked with plenty of adventuresome oddities like black garlic, beef tongue, and smoked lentils. Wremble’s also added a bit of a German twist, such as the über-rich baked spaetzle appetizer with apple, dandelion, and cheddar. The Plum burger, making a welcome transition over from the adjoining bar menu, is In-N-Out gone gourmet with its squishy bun slathered in creamy aioli and melt-in-your-mouth fresh-ground chuck. Service is informed, and desserts are a must-try. Sit at the counter overlooking the kitchen to see the silent chefs carefully crafting the intricate meals. Dinner daily.
