Ten Restaurants You Need to Visit in Northwood Village
Relish, in the cozy and quaint Northwood Village, is the ultimate mix-and-match burger joint. Here, owners Daniel and Desiree Tobin have created one of the best burger bars around, offering more than ten types of meat to make your masterpiece with, everything from turkey, tuna, and boar to duck, lamb, buffalo, veal -- even lobster. No matter what you choose, rest assured they're all fresh-ground, mixed, and shaped in-house each day. The variety doesn't stop there, however. Next, add any number of Relish's 20-plus gourmet toppings. There are relatively normal offerings, like lettuce slaw and drunken onions cooked in lager. And then there's the wacky stuff you would never think to put on a burger, like oven-roasted beets with fresh herbs or shaved asparagus with white wine and tarragon. The freedom of choice is mirrored across the menu, from shoestring-style fries and thick-cut onion rings that can be made with a choice of six gourmet finishing salts. If one of the rotating craft bottled beers isn't your thing, you can opt for a drink and dessert in one shot. Relish is just as well-known for its over-the-top milk shakes that include Key lime pie, salted caramel chocolate, bananas foster, and s'mores. And don't forget the latest menu item: made-to-order doughnuts that match the menu of shakes. Basically, it's every American fast food -- done up fancy -- in one spot.
O-BŌ Restaurant and Wine Bar
Nicole Danna O-BO Restaurant and Wine Bar now occupies the former Jade Kitchen space.
A true gem, Jade Kitchen has closed its doors to be replaced by a new one: O-BŌ Restaurant and Wine Bar. Together, owner Jeffrey Thompson and executive chef Bob Reilly have created the type of spot that is just what Northwood Village needed: a happening wine bar with artful small plates, exotic wines and beer, and sultry live music compliments of soul singer Raquel Williams. Open just three days a week -- Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights -- this is the place to go when you want to enjoy the local Northwood neighborhood with its often lively, welcoming crowd. You'll find house specials like black and white lobster ravioli, pork belly, and short rib sliders to pair with a long list of wines by the glass.
