From the former chef at El Vitral, Chaplos aims to give Cortez Hill a neighborhood eatery slinging internationally slanted American classics in a vintage-touched (old, eclectic hanging Tiffany lamps) space that Michael Jackson would've definitely considered shooting "Black or White" in if they had only opened 21 years ago. Menu highlights include Arrogant Bastard-braised pork ribs with apple coleslaw, and a chuck burger with roasted tomatoes, crispy cippolini onions and Swiss, likely to neutralize those onions. Aside from four wines and six local crafts on tap, things you pour into your mouth from cups include cocktails like the Chunky Charlie (bacon-infused Beam, pineapple, lime juice) and the Wild Mule with bourbon, Fernet, St. Germain, ginger beer, and lime. And if you need something to slow down all that tapped wine pouring into your belly, they've also got a tapas menu featuring grilled corn empanadas w/ chimichurri, and a cheese plate featuring three diff styles, plus wine-infused jam, quince, and a "daily bread" that should forgive your trespasses, lest anyone from Cortez Hill tells you to Beat It.
