Next Door Restaurant and Bar

Knock, knock.

Who's there?

A really cool bar that's also a fan-freaking-tastic restaurant. Chef Paul Niekrasz is welcoming hungry diners to his stoop at Next Door Restaurant and Bar with delicious bites of all shapes and sizes.

I was lucky enough to sample a large portion of the menu at last month's media dinner.

Small bites wowed me. From the Tomato Soup with Parmesan Grilled Cheese Wontons, to the Tuna Poke Nachos, to the Cajun Crab Cakes, I literally could not get enough. That Grilled Cheese Wonton and Tomato Soup is absolute genius, and one of the greatest bites I've taken in ages.

Not to be outdone, the Tuna Nachos and Cajun Crab Cakes were there to quench my spicy-loving taste buds as well.
If you don't love spice, don't fret, there will be plenty for you to adore as well. Cobb Salad Bites are adorable served in Bacon Bowls. What? Yes. Bacon bowls. Plus avocado, blue cheese, and a quail egg.

For the main event, might I recommend the Chimichurri Filet Mig…
