As traditional old-school fine dining continues to decline in popularity, a new category of upmarket casual eating has evolved, opening up seemingly endless opportunities for a new generation of restaurant-goers. Aiming squarely at this emerging demographic, Livery features a concise pan-American menu, delivering lively, well-conceived dishes that offer a refreshing alternative to the tired fare of many Mexican-American establishments while keeping ingredients and preparations within the comfort zone of most diners. "Livery is a casual concept intended to offer great value and experience for dining any night of the week," explained Mike Cunningham, CRG founder and CEO. "It fits all demographics, and our hope is to over-deliver for our guests." Probably the best way to launch an evening at Livery, as we did recently, is with one of the top-shelf margaritas and a plate of empanadas — the corn, the queso and the lamb varieties are truly outstanding. More adventurous drinkers might prefer to peruse the superlative spirits list, including 50 tequilas (no Jose Cuervo here!) and more than a dozen mezcals. An excellent selection of wines by the glass, predominantly sourced from South America and Spain, as well as a full contingent of rums and craft beers guarantees something for practically every taste. 86
