Better Luck Tomorrow is certainly much more bar than restaurant — just check out the seasonal cocktails and lengthy wine list — but it’s worth considering as a dining destination, too. Just ask Bon Appetit and Food & Wine, both of which included it on their best new restaurants lists for 2018. Co-owner Justin Yu has created a menu that balances bar snacks with some of the vegetable-oriented dishes he's known for, and the greasy (in a good way) Party Melt has become a late-night staple. The food shines especially brightly at brunch, but the weekly pasta Tuesday special draws strong crowds, too.
