Dining Description:  

Best Of 2013: New Bar (since July 1, 2012)

Best Of 2013: Place for a Blind Date

Best Of 2013: Neighborhood Bar: South

When you have a stellar taphouse (Bristol Brewery & Pub), a cool coffee-cocktail bar (The Principal's Office), a bad-ass bread and patisserie stand (Old School Bakery) and a sustainability-minded, creative charcuterie shop (The Meat Locker) under one roof, it's kinda hard not to be the best thing since ... well, sliced bread stuffed with fabulously fatty meats. Next to cheese curds and a pint of hop-laced awesomeness. Followed by a potent pour-over and killer dessert drink likely flavored with local whiskey. Yup — Ivywild quickly became everything we'd hoped the expensive, long-in-the-making project would be, and more. "The response has been overwhelmingly positive," says co-founder Joe Coleman. Paradoxically, the exciting newness hasn't yet worn off, while to regulars it already feels like a comfy old haunt. As for that blind date: If it's not going well, at least it's a big building in which to hide, or disappear into a crowd. If it's going famously: Hey, four stops for long conversations without walking more than 100 yards. Score. — Matthew Schniper

This old school building in a residential neighborhood is a cool setting. Good food and great atmosphere.
