Restaurant Review: NewBo Alehouse + Osaka Japanese Steak House - Cedar Rapids, IA

I recently went back home and visited with friends in Iowa and of course - we had to eat someplace new (+ someplace I always love). First up - someplace new! (actually we ate here last but who cares - go with me!):

Newbo Alehouse is in the historic Village Bank and Trust in the newly renovated and simply amazing NewBo/Czech Village. As someone that lived in CR for years - I'm seriously BUMMED that this started when I left! At least I have something amazing to come home to! On any given weekend - this part of town is HOPPING!

The wait was CRAZY so we ended up finding a row of seats at the bar and snagged them - not a small feat when there are 5 of you! Their beer selection is great - they've got a lot of craft and local beers - always a good find.

Three Cheese Mac - $9 - Cream sauce and elbow macaroni. Finished with toasted bread crumbs.

Tanner got the Mac & Cheese - it was really good. I might only know because I stole a couple of bites. IT'S FOR RESEARCH DAMMIT!  When you're sitting at a bar - you can't exactly get opinions from everyone - so for the next few - just use your imagination on deciding if it would taste good. 


Shrimp and Asparagus Mac - $15 - Gulf shrimp, sautéed asparagus, red onion and parmesan.

We also went to Osaka Japanese Steakhouse which is one of my favorite places. I got to see friends I hadn't seen in years and - despite the efforts of one drunk a$$ at our table - we had a FANTASTIC time. And it's not often you get to see your best friend defend your honor! Thanks again Red!
