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.
