Death In The Afternoon

Death in the Afternoon is a culinary oasis set in downtown's idyllic Citygarden. The weekday lunch spot is the brainchild of Adam Frager and TJ Vytlacil of the members-only restaurant and bar Blood & Sand. Death in the Afternoon features impeccably presented soups, salads, sandwiches and snacks. From kimchi and pickled vegetables to house-made pastrami served on a pretzel, the menu offers something for everyone's palate. The mahi mahi sandwich is spectacular: The fresh grilled fish is so moist it's as if it were poached. Served with Meyer lemon and dill aioli, pickles and fennel salad, it's an excellent lunchtime treat. The restaurant's signature entree is the tonkotsu ramen, a bowl of mouthwatering pork broth teeming with housemade noodles, mushrooms, pork loin and belly, a soft-boiled egg and garnished with black garlic oil. It's comfort in a bowl. And lest the kids romping in Citygardens' fountains have all the fun, Death in the Afternoon serves a rotating selection of cotton candy for dessert. It's a whimsical end to a perfect meal - a great way to kill an afternoon.
