With preppy servers and rustic-chic dining rooms, Geoff Tracy’s hangouts might look all-American, but the menu reveals an atlas of culinary influences, with everything from Chesapeake corn chowder to rigatoni Bolognese to duck spring rolls. We keep going back for the burgers, whether a gently packed patty of salmon with wasabi aïoli or a hulking beef burger with chipotles and fried pickles. Both locations run terrific weeknight happy hours with $5 bacon-topped bistro burgers and $3 beers.
