AAA Inspector Notes
As a music venue and watering hole this one is hard to beat. The brainchild of live music impresario Michael Dorf, it attracts a wide range of national touring acts performing in an intimate setting. The food end of the deal is a winner too, with pan-Mediterranean dishes such as rock shrimp arancini, roasted octopus and duck tacos serving as openers. Main acts include seared snapper and lobster spaghetti. Food also is served in the adjacent, intimate Barrel Room. A tremendous variety of wines from the barrel, by the glass or by the bottle are offered, and there is a wine-making operation in-house. A Klezmer brunch with Yiddish music and Old World specialties is offered on Sunday afternoon.
