Hodges Bend had been on my radar for awhile, but because it is across town, I had put off going there. My mistake. Relatively new condo building near 280 and University and on the ground floor is this gem of a restaurant/bar. Cocktails, well-curated wine list, tunes on turntable, superb food, and gorgeous bar area. Great waitstaff who seem to care about their jobs. Food is a shining star here. Had the most delicious asian inspired dumpling/bun with fried chicken, kimchi and one other component that was integral, but I am forgetting(my bad). Fries were damn good.
