Great Bars 2011: Black’s Bar and Kitchen

With its long glass bar, pale maple walls, and black-pebble-studded patio, this Modern American restaurant and bar feels like a luxury spa—with the addition of four screens tuned to sports and a raw bar by the door. An after-work crowd files in for happy hour (weekdays 4 to 7), when martinis are $6, glasses of wine are $5, and draft beers start at $2.75. There are also excellent deals on seafood—two-for-one Chesapeake Bay oysters, 50-cent shrimp, and half-price mussels and calamari.
