Lark

American Small Plates

  • 90
Overview

Locally-sourced American small plates tantalize at Lark where 150 lights twinkle above blue velvet booths and clean, crisp white décor downstairs, and upstairs the Bitter/Raw bar serves crudo, charcuterie and amaro-based drinks. James Beard award-winning chef John Sundstrom creates masterful seasonal menus of locally-sourced, organic ingredients and favorites like octopus a la plancha with bomba rice, piquillo peppers and smoked jowl, paired with a collection of wines rooted in the Old World and Pacific Northwest.
