Craft


Drink Better, Not More.

Little Sparrow boasts an eclectic, seasonal, menu with a fresh take on flavors from around the world, whose common thread is a thoughtful focus on local ingredients. Every plate achieves that elusive, cuisine-defining balance of sweet, salty, and sour — even dessert. Nightly dinner and Sunday brunch are served in a convivial neighborhood setting, comprised of high ceilings, exposed ducts, bistro chairs, inviting banquettes with touches of artwork and colorful accents throughout.
