534 Scratch Kitchen

534 W. Church St.

Best New

Scratch the notion of a sports bar; 534 is a bigger idea aimed at the heart of the Parramore community, a black neighborhood long neglected, although only blocks from Church Street Station. Munchies and bar snacks are chef-driven: Oysters, wings, sliders (crab cake and Philly cheese) and a dozen tacos, cod to lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. For big eaters, there’s a blackened ribeye and a bone-in porker with sweet potato hash. Thank Tim Green for giving the spot new soul.
