Standard & Pour
It’s a good thing that Henderson’s Standard & Pour serves small plates because you’re going to have a tough time choosing from the trendy gastropub’s menu selections of new American veggies, fish, meat, and dessert. Start off with the whole smoked romanesco; despite its lumpy appearance, this mutant cauliflower-broccoli baby has a smooth flavor paired with capers, red onions, golden raisins, and fine herbs. Other favorites include the date and bleu cheese jam on bacon bread (basically an adult PB&J) and the crispy oysters with sriracha egg salad (#spicy). Indulge in the beverage program, which offers catchy drinks like the First Date or the Man Candy, both of which air on the sweet side. Don’t leave without checking out the balcony; not only does it have extra plush green velvet bench seating, but it also has a killer view of the Valley.
