Co-owned by Castor Design studio, this auto-shop-inspired restaurant features a basement rock venue and a chef who moonlights as a punk rock singer. Chef Matty Matheson fronts the band Sex Tears and has so many tattoos that he’s started putting artwork (including an eagle and a snake) on his scalp. His signature is a special-order pig’s head that arrives at the communal tables with a giant cleaver buried in the skull; diners carve out succulent cheek meat for DIY soft tacos. Matheson’s not just about fat and pork, however: A rooftop garden grows produce for the restaurant and there’s a large vegetable section on the menu, with dishes like roasted baby carrots with burnt honey and deep-fried gnocchi with mushrooms.
