Joined at the hip to Red Apron, Chef Anda's groundbreaking butcher and charcuterie shop, the restaurant and bar draws heavily from Anda's line of house made products and relies on the meticulous sourcing that has made Red Apron the first and only butcher shop in the nation to use 100% Animal Welfare Approved pork. Anda and Chef Ed Witt's charcuterie program at The Partisan draws from 100s of cured muscles, pates, and sausages, showcasing over 30 different products on any given night.<br /><br />The balance of the menu is broken up into a series of meat-centric composed dishes highlighting distinctive cuts, cooking techniques, and animal breeds. The portioning encourages sampling, sharing and customizing, which allows guests to construct a completely unique dining experience with each visit.

"Their wine list is mostly Italian and very good, and superb if one also adds the gorgeous list that Rogue has. I found the food much better than Rogue's. A coup[le of dishes left me wanting---the bolognese was poor. The service needs a lots of practice. shows up a lot but not very smooth, and my waitress at times acted as if she wished she was anywhere but there. The staff that brings you the dishes recited what they brought as if reading the phonebook."

"Usually I have a pleasant time where the overall , experience--service, food, casual but elegant locale--is positive but with one of them off, the rest does not add up. The restaurant may have been switching schedules from lunch to dinner, but other than reception, the staff was unattentive and a bit haughty, something that made me focus more on the food, which makes me realize how over-prized but acceptable when I feel I'm cared for by the staff."

"I'm not a hamburger person, so one big mush of flavor (as described in the menu) holds little attraction. But the place is fun, nice to be in and the staff very attentive."
