So far, the music lineup at Disco Volante — a relatively new downtown establishment co-owned by Kevin Cook, Dow Patten, Kenny Annis, Tim Tolle of the Ruby Room, and Damon Gallagher of the band Damon & the Heathens — has shown a high level of creativity and a willingness to take risks. But the real highlight here is the food. Everyone is talking about those crispy avocado tacos with jicama slaw, the fried green tomatoes, the smoked sausage, and the ribs (which seem to have disappeared from the menu, but will hopefully make a triumphal return). Sure, it's one of those places that serves a $14 burger. But keep in mind that said burger includes bacon jam, pickled pepper mayo, and other extravagant condiments. Surely it's worth every penny.
