In the midst of the unbearable summer heat sans AC, I tend to leave my window wide open. On a bad day, a flying cockroach (yes, they fly) will make a visit. But on a good day, the smoky yet sweet smell of slow-cooked barbecue at Rack & Soul will waft its way in from across the street.
A few days ago, my roommate and I decided to give into temptation and follow the smell to partake in a barbecue feast for our backyard-less selves. Upon entering the restaurant, we were surprised at how classy yet comfy such an informal dining space could be. Stacks of firewood decorate the dining area, along with caricature portraits of both Gabriel and Wheeler, giving the feeling that you're at an extended family BBQ of your own.
