pouring cocktails at mistralOn Mondays, Happy Hour lasts till last call, featuring beignets paired with Irish coffee. The creativity of Mistral’s kitchen, one of NJM’s Top 25, is an obvious draw. Yet the caliber of the drinks—whether ordered in the restaurant or in the separate bar room—clearly keeps pace. Locals will tell you that the bar, which opened in 2015, is one of downtown’s gems. Happy Hour specials (which can be ordered only in the bar) vary daily. For all the modernity of food and drink (like the Albanian, involving mescal, Irish whiskey, caraway liqueur, artichoke liqueur and bitters), you can get a most satisfying burger here, and even watch the big game.—JH
