The Bad Seed
Restaurant and bar in Hillyard's historic public library building. Tex-Mex style eats, creative craft cocktails and a moody vibe. The menu was crafted in part to showcase several flavor-complex, house-made sauces.
Though the Bad Seed's bar side is larger, the restaurant offers all-ages seating, plus a kids menu. Live jazz nights are planned the first Monday of each month, and happy hour in the bar is daily from 4-6 pm. Currently, the Bad Seed is open just for dinner, though hours may expand next spring when the venue's back patio opens.
