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 buddies 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. Among the small plates and entrees, you'll find pork-based specialties like house-cured pancetta. Vegetables also get the spotlight with thoughtful preparations like braised artichokes with nettle pistou and pickled ramps and foraged morel mushrooms atop steamy cod. The food is bolstered by an excellent value-based wine list with reasonably priced bottles of bottles such as Blind Watchmaker from Infinite Monkey Theorem. Whatever you decide to eat, it's quickly clear that these Bs are killer.
