The almost one-year-old Honor Bar in Emeryville has officially changed its name to Honor Kitchen & Cocktails, a decision which came about because of some confusion with The Honor Bar in Beverly Hills. Alex Smith remains the man in charge of the bar, and the cocktail list and food menus remain unchanged, despite daily changing specials from chef Jordan Grosser, one of which has been a most excellent take on turducken. Also, Honor's featured bucket of beers on ice near the front door, the namesake honor bar based on the honor system, will stay put too.
Honor Kitchen & Cocktails - 1411 Powell Street, Emeryville - 510-653-8667 - Bar and kitchen open Tuesday to Thursday, 4:30 p.m. to midnight, and until 1 a.m. on weekends. Bar open later.
