After last weekend's soft openings, Surly Brewery's upstairs restaurant, Brewer's Table, unveiled it's opening menu. The finer dining space from Executive Chef Jorge Guzman, is serving up elevated, ambitious fare paired with Surly beer.
The menu is broken down by category. The first, snacks features duck tongue with curry pickles, fried green tomatoes with king crab, little neck clams with dill and sunchoke, and a beef heart reuben with a charcoal rye bun. Or you can get all four dishes on the snack platter. The rest of the menu is categorized as small, veg, fish, and meat. Highlights from each category include, respectively, beet salad with shaved foie gras and buttermik, risotto with ramps and wild mushrooms, an octopus dish with pickled pepper and chorizo, and pork jowel with picadillo and hazelnuts. Prices range from $5 for snacks upwards to $25 for whole guinea hen. The beer and a bump option allows for an omakase-style offering where the kitchen chooses and creates a dish to serve to the diner and pairs it with a Surly beer.
For dessert, four items are offered including a Cynic mousse (made with Surly Cynic, a Belgian Saison) and a chocolate peanut butter sphere with flecks of gold leaf and chai ice cream.
