Owners Anthony and Eilish Gray and chef Joe McGlynn refer to Hooked as a “bistro-style café and diner,” and, somehow, this meld of three styles of food and ambience is just what they manage to achieve, thanks to tactile, tasty cooking that leaves you wanting more, and thanks to the laid-back vibe of a busy room that is just the sort of place where you want to hang out and have another craft beer. They have already created a gaggle of great dishes, Hooked dishes that it is terribly easy to get hooked on: ultimate breakfast brioche bap; Cubano sandwich of spiced pork shoulder; Dozio’s cheese bruschetta; Joe’s pork belly burger; strawberry and white chocolate muffin. The fact that the room used to be Anthony’s father, Joe Gray’s, butchers shop adds a delightful patina of history.
