Pork is practically James Beard award winner Tamara Murphy’s middle name. That’s why, at her restaurant, those in the know go for chorizo--either with punchy gravy over manchego biscuits or with baked oysters, collard greens, and fontina cheese. Churros shaped like sea creatures and served with spiced chocolate sauce are the perfect finale. The space--country farmhouse meets industrial-chic loft, as invitingly unusual as the food--is capped with a rooftop garden patio.
