West End Tap & Kitchen
Under the guidance of two college friends—one a hospitality vet with a family connection to craft brews, the other a highly trained chef with both Japanese and French influences—West End Tap & Kitchen came into fruition. This friendly neighborhood spot highlights the duo's passions—fresh, locally sourced food complemented by a rotating lineup of craft beers. But don't expect the usual cuisine: a winter staple such as pot pie gets a seasonal makeover with charred corn, mushrooms, and a thyme pastry puff, turning the usually heavy dish into a summery confection. And because the owners favor fresh brews from their own arsenal—along with a handful of local brewers—the varieties are always changing. Current selections include a crisp West End pale ale and malty West End stout. As for dessert, wrap your head around the idea of a dark chocolate and olive oil terrine before eagerly digging in.
