$10 for $20 Worth of Upscale Pub Food and Drinks
The ever-changing menu has included such small plates as homemade pork and cognac pate with house pickles, arugula, and crostini ($12), and such entrees as the Alberta burger with blue cheese and caramelized onions ($13) and steak frites with blue-cheese fries ($18).
The chefs at Branch make everything from scratch—including butchering their own steak, curing their own bacon, and smoking their own poultry—to put their distinctive stamp on traditional dishes. Classic comfort foods take on inventive transformations to result in such unusual plates as Maine lobster dumplings and macaroni 'n' cheese gratin with Oregon black-truffle oil. On their side of the establishment, the bartenders take the same artisanal approach by infusing their bourbon with fresh local fruit and concocting their own whiskey liqueurs. The full bar features an extensive whiskey list with more than 150 whiskeys from around the world available in single glasses or tasting flights.
