jm Curley


These days, I'm all about jm Curley. For lunch (since I work close by now!), for after work drinks and snacks, and still on my list to try is their secret backroom steak joint, Bogies Place. jmC serves a ridiculously good burger; it's inexpensive, expertly proportioned and juicy - though a little messy, the good kind of messy, with melted cheddar, an addicting Russian dressing, piled with small squares of caramelized onion and crispy pickle chips. For cocktails, the bartenders work wonders with gin in the notorious 21 Temple Gin & Tonic ($9) where Plymouth gets livened up with with yellow chartreuse, bark powder, citrus and soda. The classics stay put but other cocktails rotate, I was also a big fan of the Mautone combining Plymouth, Lillet, orange bitters and fino sherry when it was on the menu. The appetizer to try is the corn bread skillet ($5) - piping hot, pooling with warm butter, honey and black pepper. Their zesty-dill house fried pickles ($5) with creole mayo are awesome. Additionally, the beer list is great and so are the staff.

Also awesome - pictured:
Seasonal Collins ($9) | gin, wild honey, smoked sea salt, rosemary, soda
5 oz natural beef patty ($7.5) | griddled onions, cheddar, pop's russian dressing, pickles
Hemingway Heat ($9) | rhum agricole, maraschino, grapefruit, lime, jalapeno
Slaw ($2) | louisiana style
Hand-cut fries ($2.5) | skin on, salt, pepper, heinz
