Bakery, sandwich shop, florist … you can now add “happy hour destination” to the descriptors of Walton’s Fancy & Staple, the Sandra Bullock-owned business in the historic Market District building at 609 W. Sixth St.
EveryThursday-Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 8L30 p.m., Walton’s is serving $5 snacks and $6 cocktails. French-inspired dishes from executive chef Phillip Anderson include items like smoked salmon tartare with apple and dill on challah toast, watermelon salad with mint and tahini vinaigrette, and petite croque monsieurs. The cocktail menu features the Peachy Green (Deep Eddy Peach, iced green tea, and mint simple syrup), the 609 Paloma (tequila, blood orange liquor, lime juice, Jarritos grapefruit soda, and simple syrup), and the Salty Melon (watermelon, gin, lime juice, jalapeño, and smoked sea salt).
