From the People Who Gave You the Annex and Acme Lounge: Something Very Different Than Those

You’d Do Quite Well to Bring a Date Here

In Robin Hood’s Sherwood, stealing from the rich and giving to the poor was the name of the game.

In your Sherwood, there are no games. Only 18-ounce T-bones and pan-grilled mackerel. And a bunch of other things. Regardless, not a game.

It’s called Sherwood’s Bistro & Bar, it’s open now in Little River, and here’s the slideshow.

Designed and named after the neighboring historic Sherwood Forest in El Portal, it’s where you’ll find vintage tropical prints and large open windows ushering in the warm summer breeze.

And it’s from the same people who gave you The Annex Wynwood and Acme Lounge. Similarities you and your date can discuss while eyeballing the comfort food-heavy menu courtesy of the chef behind Morgans in Wynwood.

But before having your way with that coq-au-vin, head past the bistro chairs and upright piano to the Magnolia Bar out on the patio. Grab a seat at one of the French garden tables, take in the lush garden setting and order a round of pecan vodka Old Fashioneds.

Great. The coq-au-vin is now fair game. As is the rabbit pot pie. As is another round of Old Fashioneds.

We’re done saying “as is” now.

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
