This funky little spot in Cooper Young opened in 2013 with little fanfare but loads of fans; chef Karen Carrier's latest nightspot / restaurant is fresh and hip and a great addition to the neighborhood nightlife scene. Decorated with treasures from around the world - and plenty of tag sale chic - DKDC offers small plates with an international flair. There are only a handful of items on the menu, with a few special offered most nights; these are all small plates, mind you, and the offerings completely change every five weeks or so. There's no one country or cuisine that's prominent - but the offerings seem to come in themes - like Creole, when as I write this there are crawfish empanadas, boudin balls and New Orleans-style shrimp on the short menu. Cocktails are served up in an array of containers, from Mason jars to juice glasses, and include twists on tradition - like a blackberry julep. And there's a small but very good wine list as well.
- Best for Cooper-Young's Best Restaurants Because: Anything Karen Carrier does is worth a visit - and Bar DKDC is so different from her Beauty Shop that you should compare and contrast.
- Best for Late Night Because: The vibe is very chill late at night,so it is a great spot for solving the world's problems.
