Fodor's Review

Beer is on a high now and this trendy Valencia-corridor newbie is propelling it into even fancier realms. Opened by the same guys behind the decidedly more casual Monk's Kettle, Abbot's Cellar is pairing the finest crafts out there with, shall-we-say, more composed food. No burgers, no fries here; instead you'll find potato gnocchi with braised short ribs and roasted trumpet mushrooms. The 3,000-foot space is cavernous but elegantly rustic with a long counter area, banquettes,

barnwood walls, and a two-level beer cellar in the back. If you're a beer novice, the four-course, beer-pairing menu ($75) will school you. If you order à la carte, no problem. Cicerone Mike Reis or any server can help you select from the 20 on draft or almost 100 bottles that span many countries. Because beer has been typically known as a casual beverage, be warned: a tenner won't cover you, and portions are small.
