Higgins is an institution, it doesn't really need my further support with an online review, but I can't help but mention how amazing dining here is. I've come to rely on a wonderful ambiance, knowledgeable staff, and excellent service every time. The food is universally exquisite and the menu rotates a bit, so I recommend repeat visits. I would specifically recommend (if they have it) the Whole Pig Plate, or really any special (fish especially.) Additionally, the bar/bistro has a terrific menu that is less expensive, but includes an awesome open-faced pastrami and a tasty sirloin burger. Dessert is always a pleasure. If you're looking for a more specific dish recommendations, just ask the wait staff, they have never let me down. Finally, the drink list (wine, beer, liquor) is lengthy and diverse - one of the best selections in town without a question. I am so glad Higgins exists, just thinking about the meals I've had there makes me happy.
Pros: Food, service, ambiance, everything really.
Cons: Medium pricey - although you get what you pay for.
