Follow the dirt road that runs parallel to North Shepherd Dr. until you hit the railroad tracks, and there, just north of 34th St., you’ll find Cottonwood tucked away in the pine trees. But this is no quiet getaway—the sprawling icehouse from the owners of Liberty Station is packed day and night with neighborhood residents here for the great pub grub, craft beer, thoughtful cocktails, live music, and kid-friendly environment, which complements the family vibe of the area. Barbecued oysters are the perfect palate primer for the Squirrel Master Burger, stuffed with poblano peppers and topped with jalapeños, bacon, and a fried egg. And during Sunday brunch, don’t miss the splurge-worthy tres leches French toast.
