Let's not kid ourselves. You'll be needing nourishment and a pick-me-up. Let chef Patrick McCormick's elegant, stick to your ribs, farmer-inspired fare nurse you back to health.

While you're at it, bar manager (and bold sweater aficionado) Richard Pajewski is bound to stretch the weekend just a little longer, with the help of the country's largest independent, family-owned whiskey producer. Just smile and let Pajewski minister to you with Elijah Craig, calm you with Mellow Corn, and riff with Rittenhouse.
