Kings Row Gastropub ups the ante on typical pub fare with gourmet cuisine and craft beers. Begin menu endeavors with a starter of crunchy tacos barbacoa, complete with avocado salsa, cojita cheese, and grilled jalapenos ($11). The wood-grilled, dry-aged burger, smothered in onion confit, blue cheese, white cheddar, and thick bacon, recalls the days when every burger had a wood-burning stove ($15), and the duck sliders accent exotic patties with hoisin-shiitake mushrooms ($14). Sumptuous versions of hearty Old World classics abound as well, including oxtail osso bucco with turned potatoes and carrots in a red-wine bourguignonne ($19), and tagliatelle tossed with house-cured pancetta, fresh peas, parmesan, and a fried duck egg ($15).
