Brix Restaurant and Sports Lounge
Chefs sling a full menu of American classics at Brix Restaurant and Sports Lounge, where professional athletes occupy more than 30 flat-screen televisions and a massive projection screen. They specialize in pub-style appetizers, such as buffalo wings and nachos, as well as pizzas, burgers and wraps, and homestyle entrees. Kitchen staffers also take great pride in their fried okra, which meets batter and oil whole, rather than cut into slices or carved into comically small totem poles.
Exposed-brick walls surround the dining room's gleaming hardwood floors, full bar, and dark leather armchairs, which all work in unison to create a contemporary atmosphere during televised UFC matches and football games or karaoke and trivia nights. The outdoor patio houses additional seating for al fresco meals or attempts to hail passing jets.
