We were grateful Halycon was not participating in Restaurant Week and decided to make our second visit. As others have stated, the decor is very cool with chandeliers made of branches and tables that look like elegant tree trunks. You can't beat the view of the city at night, and I'm sure the outdoor dining would be great in good weather.
We decided on a pork belly and Brussels sprouts appetizer. At $10, it was a steal considering the size and flavor. You can never go wrong with pork belly, and the sprouts were a tangy, vinegary surprise. Even though we were trying not to get full before dinner, we ate the whole thing.
Since you can also never have too much pork belly, my fella got the burger for dinner. We thought there was no way the burger could live up to the hype... but we were so glad to be wrong! The bun was sweet - almost donut-esque - and the pork belly/beef were just the right balance of salt. The bacon marmalade was smoky and creamy, and the cheese made the entire dish. It almost doesn't seem right to call this just a burger, so I'm gonna call it a work of culinary art.
I got the fire-roasted chicken, which was fall off the bone tender, and the greens, sweet potatoes and farro balanced it out nicely. I ate all of it plus a bite of the burger. Oh, and some of the fries with homemade (cinnamon-y?) sweet ketchup. Nom nom nom.
Needless to say, we were too full for dessert! I should note that our server was very fun and personable. He made a couple of mistakes (forgot a beer we ordered, messed up the check), but he was so apologetic and nice that it was easily overlooked. I can't recommend Halycon enough!
