True to its name, Just Grapes Lounge focuses on wines, with more than 30 vintages poured by the glass and 18 more varieties sequestered on a reserve bottle list. Microbrews, champagnes, and ports round out the lounge's full bar, complementing a Mediterranean-tinged tapas menu. Small plates, ranging from hummus and crostini to stuffed baked clams, are ideal for smothering appetites or boosting a tiny table's self-esteem. Three styles of rustic pizza artfully pair tomatoes with cheese, whereas molten fondue, served in a bread bowl, comes in varieties including gorgonzola and double-cream brie.

By subtly tweaking flavors and adding unorthodox seasonal and local ingredients, Chef Albert Scazafave puts his signature stamp on pub food at Twisted Elm. Sriracha BBQ sauce is used to spice up the smoked St. Louis-style ribs, there's a hint of cognac in the french onion soup, and brie and cheddar fondue get mixed in with pieces of lobster in the grilled cheese. His innovations continue at brunch, which features almond-crusted french toast and hand-tossed pizza with housemade sausage and scrambled eggs.

Twisted Elm's American and imported craft beers complement Chef Albert's artfully plated dishes; naturally made wines are also available. Every Tuesday night, the gastropub hosts live acoustic music and the popular opening act "Musicians Stringing Their Instruments: Live!"

Three Wise Monks updates visitors online on the daily contents of its hop rocket, a Randallizer that infuses beer with basic hops or flavors such as coffee beans, fruit, and Clydesdales' tears.

ReBar celebrates one of the grandest trinities in the American tradition: burgers, beer, and live music. Starting with 10-ounce Angus beef patties, cooks customize burgers to diners' specifications, or whip up one of their own from a succinct list of specialty burgers. Of course, a dish doesn't have to be a slab of beef between bread to make their menu. Cooks also branch out with Southern-style pulled pork and eight-ounce ribeyes, and roasted pork sandwiches with broccoli rabe and sharp provolone. To wash it all down, they turn things over to bartenders, who pour drafts of everything from a selection of 20 craft brews such as Brooklyn Lager and Magic Hat #9 to good ol' Pabst Blue Ribbon. Although ReBar's patio is open for both lunch and dinner, evening meals are often punctuated by musical performances from local bands who enhance the bar's all-American eats with the sounds of wailing electric guitars and rhythms synced to the hoofbeats of Paul Revere's ride.
