Gabriel Stulman definitely wins the award for most improved restaurateur of 2013: After three years of operating with a small, electric kitchenette, he has revamped Jeffrey's Grocery and installed a full-size gas kitchen — as well as an exhaust system, so you don't leave smelling like your dinner. New gadgets call for new food, of course, so Stulman has hired the restaurant's first-ever pastry chef, who will make all baked goods in-house. Chefs Michael Toscano and James McDuffee have conceived a brand-new menu, with an expanded raw-bar program and comfort foods like roast chicken with pretzel stuffing, fish 'n' chips with doughnut holes, and escargot toast. Take a look at a few of the dishes and the menus, straight ahead.
