Best Undercover Bistro 

Brennan's Colony

From its worn wooden bar top to the torn linoleum flooring, this dimly lit watering hole could hardly look more humble. And its menu, featuring burgers and nachos, keeps up that charade. But check out the list of daily specials, filled with surprisingly upscale eats, from scallops with orange beurre blanc to juicy grilled pork chops on a bed of blue-cheese mashers. It doesn't take long to realize that appearances aside, Brennan's Colony is the very definition of a bistro: An unpretentious neighborhood spot that serves reliably good food, prepared by chefs who give a damn, at prices that won't bust a budget.
