With a speakeasy-inspired atmosphere, Trick Dog has quirky drink names like the Pennies from Heaven, which is Templeton rye, Amaro Meletti, amontillado sherry, Leopold Brothers Sour Apple liquer, and The Bon Vivants’ Gold Rush Bitters, as well as the Grandma’s Sweater, made with Beefeater 24 gin, Zucca Rabarbaro, blood orange, mint, lime, and lemon soda. They also feature a large number of beer, wine, and house-made sodas, like their pineapple, coconut vinegar, and lime soda.
The Scotch egg and the trick dog are the favorite choices of many if you’re looking for something a little heartier. The Scotch egg is cooked the traditional way, a soft-boiled egg, but this one gets a special twist: brandade, beet confit, salmon roe, and crème fraiche. The trick dog is the restaurant’s take on a burger but it’s served like a hot dog. On the relatively lighter side, the kale salad features avocado, Parmesan, pepitos and an egg yolk dressing. If you’re looking for a place to get a specialty drink or bar meal that’s made with care, this is the place.
