The Food: Bitter & Twisted's happy hour deals may not be the most enticing in town, but when you've got chef Bob Tam's creative and unexpected offerings on the table, we'll try not to say another word about it. The Hurricane Popcorn ($5.50) and Smashed Chips ($6.50) were both delicious and elevated twists on standard bar fare.

Thick-cut potato slices, crispy around the edges and tender in the middle, were slathered in horseradish crema, a smoked red pepper sauce, salsa verde, and something called twisted chili sauce. Once combined on the dish, the sauces were almost indistinguishable in flavor, but they worked so well all mixed together that we didn't mind.
