ZEST: Casual elegant dining at The Laundry

The Laundry

— Owned by chef and restaurateur Rex Brice, Laundry is a concept-specific restaurant located in the historic Soda Creek building downtown.

It offers casual elegant dining, blending rustic charm and a contemporary urban, at-home atmosphere.

Using local products and slow cooking and smoking, it encourages plate sharing, with 95 percent of its offerings priced less than $15.

Specialties include the Best Ribs Ever, brined in whey, smoked for four hours and braised in molasses and beer; and French-cured, locally-sourced charcuterie meats, including pork and lamb. Shared plates include the cocoa-coffee-smoked bison short ribs with aged Manchego cheese, apple- and hickory-smoked brisket philly, Brussels sprout hash and spicy shrimp pow-pow.

All this is complemented by a diverse beer and wine selection, 
a full line of whiskeys and tequilas and special house-infused spirits, complete with homemade tinctures and bitters.

Favorites include Satan's Whiskers (gin, sweet and dry vermouth, orange juice and Grand Marnier), the Fiery Margarita (spicy, pepper-infused tequila) and the Smoke & Thyme, made with pear-infused vodka. Hit it at happy hour from 4:30 to 6 p.m. for drink and food specials.
