The extensive menu at this casual downtown eatery and microbrewery combines American and Continental fare. For a starter you might sample the escargots and mushrooms in puff pastry and cream sauce or bite into the nicely laden bruschetta. If you want a spicy-sweet start to your meal, try the Mardis Gras shrimp (spicy shrimp baked in jalapeño corn bread and drizzled with honey). Steak selections include a filet mignon (6- or 10-ounce options), sirloin sandwich, and New
York strip steak au poivre. There are also seafood items, like the Seashore Pasta, packed with mussels, artichoke hearts, clams, portobella mushrooms, and sun-dried and grape tomatoes. The staff will know just which microbrew should go with your meal, and if you or your kids want to try a homemade brew but without the alcohol, order a root beer, made on the premises with pure mountain water and cane sugar. (If you're really curious how the brewing process works, request a tour of the small brewing facilities.) For a sweet finish, share a slice of the New York cheesecake drizzled with strawberries.
