What to get: Pork loin with greens and eggplant; cavatelli with roasted chicken and chicken-skin cracklings; hake with beans and corn; grilled skirt steak with pured potatoes and mustard greens.
Sure, you can get an omelet and French toast off of Birch & Barleys new brunch menu, but you can also order house-brined corned beef hash, fried chicken and waffles, and buffalo chicken flatbread.
Bitches Who Brunch love B&B's brunch. Try the house-made donuts - which includes a toffee-bacon donut (!).
Have the tasting menu!
Their brat burger may be one of the best burgers you'll ever eat. And it comes with their homemade mustard for the fries.
The maple glazed Brussel sprouts are to die for as is the beet risotto
Great food paired with a fantastic, extensive beer selection.
An upstairs/downstairs, beer-focused restaurant and gastropub. At Birch & Barley, order the cavatelli and flounder tartare; at Church Key, Tater Tots and charcuterie.
