Hg2 : The Hedonist

The Original Pantry Cafe

In business since 1924, this quaint, time-honoured institution is currently owned by former Mayor Richard Riordan, and never closes… which is good, because should you find yourself wanting a generous helping of hamhocks and beans at 3am this would be the place to come. The menu is big – as are the portions – and rich in a range of hearty, home-y dishes. Sirloin tips, short ribs, spaghetti and meatballs, country-fried steak, navy bean soup – these are just a tiny sampling of the grub on offer, and each are prepared with honest-to-goodness lovin’ care. Breakfast is a gut-busting affair, so come prepared to adjust a notch in your belt. Do stop in throughout the week for the night-specific desserts. (Our favorite is the Monday night peach cobbler. Divine.)
