Fried pig ear fries. Caviar pie with potato chips. Heirloom grains from the lauded Anson Mills. Ryan Donaldson is not messing around. At Gather Kitchen and Bar, Donaldson aims to capture the casual energy of Spanish pintxo bars met with the convivial vibe of family gatherings. So gather ’round somewhere in the 80-seat dining room and bar, where you can choose from a Spanish–and French–influenced menu, with some Italian and Latin flavors, too. Think duck rillettes, foie gras mousse with balsamic fig jam, roasted marrow bones, polenta with wild mushrooms, grilled octopus, slow-roasted pork belly and clams, braised beef cheek with gnocchi, and more amongst the sizable offering.
