Feel like going out for comforting food, delicious cocktails, and great hospitality? Head over to Hunky Dory, a contemporary British-American tavern located in a popular area of the Heights. Hunky Dory’s chef Richard Knight created a menu that contains new versions of classic British dishes. Their dedication to quality, local sourcing, and fresh ingredients makes that their menu changes every season. They currently serve delicious hearty meals like fish & chips, black pudding, and the chicken & eggs that are grilled on their impressive wood-fired heart grill to give it that smoky flavor. Though the majority of the dishes revolve around meat, there are some tasty vegetarian options you can order like the roasted butternut squash with buttermilk porridge.
Chef Richard Knight also brought back some of the favorites of his first restaurant Feast. Those who were regulars at this restaurant were delighted to find out that the famous sticky toffee pudding had made it to Hunky Dory’s menu. Even though you might think you have no room for dessert anymore, you cannot miss this sponge date cake that is repeatedly soaked in caramel and served with clotted cream. It’s so yummy!
Besides a varied food menu, they also offer an extensive selection of wines, whiskeys, and cocktails, curated by Travis Hinkle. If you’re not sure about what to order, make sure to ask for a recommendation as the experts are more than willing to help! Tip: when you order the Rover Club Cocktail, $2 from your drink will be donated to local animal shelter Friends For Life. As a thank you, the drink is served with a cute paw print. Hunky Dory is open for brunch, lunch, and dinner and has a pub, dining room, and an amazing patio.
