Epic's epic menu slays hunger on an epic battlefield of fabled brick-oven flatbread, employing a savory legion of apps, salads, and entrees equipped with meaty broadswords and sturdy pasta shields. Contemporary American flavors court lunch crowds with whimsical pinwheels, a tortilla-based twist on classic sandwiches such as the club (chicken, avocado, tomato, and pepper jack, $12), and delicate pasta plates, like sautéed Pacific white shrimp over angel hair ($16).
Dinner showcases similar palate pleasers, with the chicken marsala and shallot-herb mashers ($13) and seared beef sirloin with au gratin potatoes ($20) dueling for the hands of coy carnivores. Epic's popular brick-oven flatbread is available all day, with accompaniments of house-made hummus ($4) or blue cheese brie, dried tomatoes, and onions ($7), as are its delectable desserts.

Epic Casual Dining
Monikers like “Ken’s,” “Mr. Morton’s,” and “Mr. Martinez’s” led Cityweekly to award the 2009 distinction of "best man-named salads" to Epic Casual Dining, whose gentlemanly greens top off a menu of contemporary American eats. In the kitchen, chefs spangle flatbreads with creative ingredients such as cranberry cheddar, sweet marinated onions, and Kobe skirt steak, then bake them to a golden crisp within sweltering brick ovens. Meanwhile, juicy cuts of meat and seafood sear to a succulent finish before donning herb-infused butters and savory wine reductions. The dining room’s custard-hued walls pop with vibrant abstract artwork beneath softly lit pendant lighting, and linen-dressed tabletops bestow a level on elegance during meals and a dose of comfort during after-hours games of Head's Up, Seven Up. An extensive wine list mingles with live music performances on Wednesdays and Thursdays to complement each innovative flavor.
