In the upscale Pearl District – the warehouses and railroad yards have been replaced with art galleries, high-rise condos and boutiques – the lofty Irving St. Kitchen preserves an industrial vibe while still managing to feel cozy. Snag one of the curtained, wooden booths or a table by the bookshelves in the restaurant’s mini-library, and tuck into southern-inspired fare, like salmon gravlax Benedict served on a buttermilk biscuit with wild arugula and a dill hollandaise. Diners with a sweet tooth should opt for the creamy, steel-cut oatmeal jazzed up with caramelized apple slices and cocoa nibs.
