The Pitch & Fork
Gastropubs seem to be all the rage lately and The Pitch & Fork is no exception. Brought to you by Jacques Ouari of Jacques Brasserie, the gastropub and cocktail lounge impresses tough palates with its top notch eats. Chef Stephen Putnam has many hearty, meaty dishes on the menu, none of which disappoint. Favorites include Devils on Horseback, an appetizer comprised of blue cheese stuffed dates wrapped in bacon, Grilled St. Louis Ribs, marinated in a Jagermeister barbecue sauce, and Gruyere Croquettes, to start. Entrees also put up a fight for your attention with selections including Braised Lamb Shank, Lamb Shepherds Pie and The P&F Burger. The side dishes add to the meal with options like barbecued onion rings, truffle fries and smoked gouda mashed potatoes.
With such hearty options on the menu, it's surprising that you can even fit anything to drink in your stomach, but the cocktails at The Pitch & Fork are almost as equally impressive as the food. Signature cocktails range from The Pitch & Fork, made with gin, simple syrup, lemon juice, berries and champagne, to Once Daily, made with apple brandy, Bacardi dark rum, ginger liquor, simple syrup and Fernet Branca. The bar also has a lengthy wine list to keep you satisfied.
