Masters Kitchen and Cocktail
Built into the shell of an old auto parts warehouse, Masters cavernous space lets the building’s character shine through. In places, it almost looks like they added extra beams and boards to give it an extra lumber-y feel. It gets chilly when the weather’s cold, but the big space soaks up noise better than expected and the breeziness can be a boon on hot days and nights.
Masters’ best feature is a menu of expertly executed cocktails (around $11), many of which showcase simple elegance instead being fashionably overwrought. Sandwiches ($12 to $15), starters ($9 to $13), and larger entrées ($15 to $25) compose a menu of barroom standards, all of which have been given the flashy makeover that’s in fashion right now.
Still, it’s public house fare, not fine dining, so bring your appetite for meat and starch in large portions. Standouts include the sweet, almost cakelike cornbread on the fried chicken and the cleverly constructed ploughman’s pickle served with the scotch egg.
