Tel: 619 446 0002's insider take:

Inventive upmarket twists on pub grub are the hallmark of this downtown gastropub. Deviled eggs get dressed up with pink salt and artichoke mousse, popcorn is flavored with truffle butter, and corn dogs come with chipotle aïoli. But devotees insist that burgers and beer are the only real choice: The menu offers a number of gourmet takes on the humble patty, including the Neighborhood Burger (with caramelized onion, Gruyère cheese, and pepper greens), the spicy Cajun burger (with pickled cucumber salad and jalapeño mayo), and the 777 (named for the eatery's East Village address), topped with baby spinach, plum tomato confit, and béarnaise sauce. The tap list, which includes over two dozen local, domestic and imported craft brews, is impressive and constantly evolving. If beer isn't your thing, try the "other malt," a frothy Tahitian vanilla bean milkshake thickened with bits of New York cheesecake.—Audrey Davidow
