Bar or restaurant? When you’re unsure, it’s time to consult the golden ratio: kids at tables to grizzled old guys hunched over the bar. On a recent Saturday mid-afternoon visit to Chicken on the Run, the ratio was 6:5.
The artisan meats and cheeses behind the counter also anchor the menu, and the wine selection is impressive yet affordable. Sit at the bar, communal table, or on the patio—and hit up the beer dock on your way out.
