Service: Perfect. The hype has finally died down enough to enjoy a meal on a sunny friday afternoon without a 45 minute wait or a noisy crowd.
Booze: As the name implies, there’s [over] twenty beers on tap. Good variety, nothing too obscure, and the prices are right at $4.75 a pint with a daily special at $3.50.
Pretzels | Pickled Vegetables, Beer Mustard $ 6, with cheese $ 1.50
French Breakfast | bacon jam, brie, pickled onions, fried shoestring potatoes $ 10.50
Muffaletta | salami, ham, mortadella, provolone, arugula, roasted red pepper, artichoke, giardiniera, and garlic aioli on ciabatta $9
As far as pretzels are concerned, these were okay; the mustard was grainy and hot. Simply not enough tasty beer cheese for the $1.50 up charge. A beautiful, juicy, well-balanced burger was served medium rare as resquested—GASP. WHAT? Fantastic crunch from the “green bean casserole fried onion thingies” with a bite from the pickled red ones. Never imagined two types of onions on one burger? Now you have. I could go on for days about how perfect the (beer-battered?) fries were smothered with roasted garlic aioli, but I’ll resist. The “muffuletta” was anything but; however, a tasty interpretation. Personally, I liked it better because I’m not a fan of olive spread. My traditionalist dinner-mate said: “yummy; not a muffaletta.” Unfortuntely it was served with undercooked and under-seasoned brussels sprouts.
Overall: Yup. Go.
