applekraut and pickles. We chose 3 from each list for $15.
I’m trying to remember all that we chose – I know there was smoked salmon, candied pork belly and smoked sausage. The cheese was goat cheese fritter, kickapoo (cuz it’s fun to say) and fresh mozzarella. They have lots of options for meats & cheeses to please anyone and the price is great too for an appetizer.
We went to TOWN on this one – we definitely had an empty board when we were done. 🙂
Oleg (yup – Oleg!) had the french onion & mushroom soup – he really enjoyed it. Julia’s entree was the Meatloaf ($17). She was hemming & hawing but finally settled on this. She enjoyed it but wasn’t quite prepared for the size (huge portion).
I had the easiest choice – if I see Short Ribs ($24) on a menu – I get them…with good reason. They’re always amazing! These were served with a Barbarossa demi-glace topped with tomato chutney. This was DELICIOUS!! I tell ya – live by that rule – if you see Short Ribs on a menu – just put it down and order.
Why Should You Go? All in all – I enjoy Moerlein – the beer selection is great and I’ve had a good success rating with their food. My guests also enjoyed it – especially the view – after a long day of meetings – it’s nice and peaceful to just relax with a nice drink and enjoy the view. I even introduced Oleg to the Bourbon Barrel Ale – he was a happy guy!
