First Look: Bar Dough Rises to the Occasion in Lower Highland


Bar Dough didn't take long to rise in the former home of a convenience store next to Highland Tap & Burger. After a complete gutting and rebuild, the space opened over the weekend with chef-partner Max MacKissock's menu of stuzzichini (appetizers), housemade pastas, wood-fired pizzas baked in an imported Acunto oven, and other dishes ranging from traditional Italian to nostalgic, East Coast favorites. Photographer Danielle Lirette fired off photos of Bar Dough's first lunch service, capturing the food, drinks and bustling kitchen in the images below.
