A bit out of the way and worth the travel, Fifty First Bar and Kitchen is a small little house type place in the Nations with serious, serious flavor. From the moment we walked in with a vinyl brunch hour on and realized that one of the most fantastic bartenders in the city had been recruited to open here, we knew this brunch would be a treat.

Super friendly staff,and they worked out fast service very quickly despite their newness. The menu is always rotating, but I got the "bloody bar" plate - actually a kind of pickles and cheese platter not just a bloody mary and condiments. Oh they know how to pickle. Their pickled okra was sublime, their pickled quail eggs drove me as weak-kneed as the smell of tea eggs at a Taiwanese night market. The yolk...oh that yolk.

Portions are not made to stuff you full but leave you delighted. Loved the atmosphere, incredible food.
