Regulars at Baba say that this Arlington restaurant really knows how to do festive happy hours and celebratory brunches.
After work you’ll find the bar filled with a lively crowd chatting and sipping cocktails (try the bar’s hand-crafted raspberry fizz or go for a $5 glass of wine). Discounted appetizers include shareables like beef skewers with kimchi yogurt and crispy golden hand-cut chips. The weekend crowd is a bit more relaxed, lingering over brunch with classic mimosas and bloody Marys. If it’s your first time at Baba, regulars suggest you try the kitchen’s signature smoked salmon crepes, topped with tartar sauce and capers (if you’ve got a sweet tooth, there are plenty of sweet crepes to choose from, too). The dining room itself channels a quirky, laid back atmosphere, thanks to tufted leather armchairs and walls filled with vintage portraits.
