Fodor's Review

Don't call this beer-focused hot spot a gastropub—Chef Paul Kahan (of Blackbird fame) prefers "beer hall" (though wine is available, too). Certainly the long communal tables, at which beer connoisseurs sample from a selection hovering around 100 brews, give the bustling space the air of an Oktoberfest celebration. The seafood- and pork-focused menu does give an elevated nod to pub fare, though, and diners share shucked oysters and just-fried pork rinds before tucking into grilled, smoky country ribs, fried perch, and beef-heart tartare. Brunch is just as popular as dinner here, so arrive early or call for a reservation—seating fills up fast.
