Abejas is Spanish for "bees," but this cozy Golden charmer doesn't serve Latin-inspired fare. Instead, the place is named for owners Brandon Bortles and Barry Dobesh — lifelong friends known to friends as "the Bs." What you will find is an eclectic, seasonal roster of clever yet grounded dishes with French and Mediterranean influence from chef Nicholas Ames. Among the small plates and entrees, you'll find pork-based specialties like terrines and daily cuts from whole pigs butchered in-house weekly. Vegetables also get the spotlight with thoughtful preparations like salt-roasted celeriac in a frisee salad and grilled kale stems atop steamy black cod. The food is bolstered by an excellent, value-based wine list with reasonably priced bottles of the Blind Watchmaker from Infinite Monkey Theorem, an uncommon Castelfeder Rieder lagrein from Italy, and more. Whatever you decide to eat, it's quickly clear that these Bs are killer.
