Hen House Eatery

With an afternoon-long happy hour and a cheery staff serving up breakfast, lunch, and brews, Hen House Eatery is giving downtowners something to cluck about. The iconic Peter’s Grill space now boasts fresh, citrusy hues, reclaimed wood, and furniture as locally sourced as the kitchen’s ingredients. Find breakfast classics all day long (tiramisu pancakes, smoked salmon Benedict). And keep your eyes out for former Star Tribune columnist Barbara Flanagan to reclaim her honorable walnut booth. • 114 S. Eighth St., Mpls., 612-345-4664, henhouseeatery.com
