The patio at Dovetail 14th Street Restaurant might be a little more crowded during the warm months, but it’s designed to serve as a year-round seating option for guests. With climate control and a permanent bar situated at one end, it’s a chic fresh-air space that’s as stylish as the indoor bar and dining room.
Sit down inside or outside to sample the New American snacks that headline the menu at Dovetail. Start with the kimchi deviled eggs dusted with Korean pepper and the snap cracklin’, which are barbecue-spiced pork rinds. They pair well with the artisan cocktails and fine wines that flow from the bar. So do the entrees, most of which fall into three categories: Dock of the Bay (seafood), Field and Farm (chicken and steak), and One in the Hand (burgers and sandwiches). You can’t go wrong with the signature Dovetail burger loaded with cheddar cheese, caramelized onion aioli, and kimchi relish, all tucked neatly inside a pillowy brioche bun and served with garlic dill pickles and French fries on the side.
