We enjoyed plump lamb chops and buttery sole shortly after The Hideout opened, but wondered if the restaurant would last because of its hidden location behind a sporting goods store. But young chef-owner JB Balingit has created a simple sanctuary by offering consistent comfort fare in an unpretentious setting. Our recent meals of honey-licked boneless fried chicken with homey mashers and assertive chile-dotted pasta puttanesca were simple yet irresistible. And we found the salads, both a gargantuan wedge of iceberg and a goodie-strewn toss of kale and shaved brussels sprouts (ask for extra dressing), fun starters to share. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner Tues.–Sun.
