The Exchange District is home to Chef Mandel Hitzer's stylish restaurant Deer + Almond, serving contemporary renditions of shared and small plates. Inventive cocktails feature on the drinks list, alongside some pale ale brews and lagers. Each dish is divinely plated and impeccably served. The day menu is a blend of classics as well as imaginative specials, such as the Tuna Carpaccio with Alabama white sauce, Papaya & Pork and the Yellowfin Tuna Sandwich with olive tapenade. At night, dishes such as Risotto with mustard greens and manchego, and Blackened Striploin with kaffir lime and coconut broth emerge on the menu. While this eatery invites plenty of natural light during the day, it transforms into a suave spot come night.
