Foundry, a Melrose supper club run by Patina alum Eric Greenspan, is as relaxed as a place with a $80 tasting menu can be, with a spacious patio, a dining room weirdly commingled with the open kitchen, and a bar area dominated by laid-back piano music. Waiters rush by with little cast-iron pots of pork belly with fried eggs and fitted rounds of toast; rare, crisp-skinned salmon with shaved beets and puréed beets; and braised short ribs with an exceptionally airy horseradish-potato purée. The eclectic wine list is long and reasonably priced, the cheese plate is formidable, and on Tuesday nights, there's fried chicken.
