Ration and Dram is a great place to keep in your back pocket - it’s easy to walk-in for cocktails and snacks or an all-day brunch. Right on the border of Edgewood and Kirkwood, this spot has two outdoor seating options - a patio with picnic tables and a second-story porch. The snacks, like poutine and burrata with roasted garlic, are the best way to go, though if you’re here for brunch, get one of their dressed-up versions of fast food favorites, like the McDowell, which is basically an egg McMuffin.
