The beers were flowing; in fact, three kegs tapped out while I was there.
Disclaimer: Forgive the not-so-good pics. It was dark and I was trying to take quick pics without being conspicuous.
I ate the charcuterie & cheese plates, bacon-wrapped dates, fava bean & artichoke brulee, and a steak grinder. While everything was good, the dates were by far the best thing I tried.
The charcuterie plate was also very good, something I'll order again for sure. It featured a selection of sausages and cured meats like proscuitto & coppa served with banana peppers, bread, and a mustard ale sauce.
I should have taken a pic when the meat & cheese plates first arrived, but everyone started in as soon as they were set down.
The brulee is a creamy baked dip, a sort of more sophisticated version of the standard artichoke dip (though it needs to be served with more bread, since it's such a generous portion of dip).
The grinder was made up of tender, marinated, grilled steak topped with mozzarella. Nothing too fancy, but tasty. It hit the spot after a few brews.
Next time, I'll try the Sicilian Gumbo (with salsiccia, shrimp, fava beans, roasted red peppers, & ground veal topped with risotto), pizza (so many of them sound so good!), butternut squash ravioli (with white bean ragout & age butter), and one of the dinner specials like "slow cooked pork Osso Buco with gorgonzola and cheddar macaroni" (available on Thursdays).
