Elixir-foodie fusion for the nostalgia inclined, this Brit-inspired gastropub will warm your cockles during this cold snap.England. A small nation with a long history and a very big reach. The Brits deserve props for contributing more than a few hearty staples to this century's culture queue—namely fish and chips, Bollywood, and the Duchess of Cambridge—but perhaps the best breed of British ingenuity is found in the gastropub. A bit off the map from London's pub scene, Slightly Oliver (meaning slightly sloshed in cockney) pairs a carefully curated menu of bangers, curry, and kidney pie with house renditions of prohibition-era cocktails. Toting a bar that resembles an apothecary shop, the mixologist-in-residence uses seasonal ingredients to achieve a farm-to-glass philosophy. Think agave nectar, fresh herbs, and barrel-aged liquors. Homemade ale, spiced rum punches, and Hemingway-worthy elixirs. Overflowing with old world charm, Slightly Oliver has plenty of reasons to get, ahem, slightly oliver.
