Northdown Cafe & Taproom

A comfortable neighborhood bar outfitted with MI barnwood and a massive 1960s civil defense billboard, Northdown's pouring 60-plus frequently rotating beers (under the direction of a Map Room alum) while the kitchen turns out comforting Midwestern noshes of chicken and biscuit pie, open-faced meatloaf sandwiches w/ mashed 'taters & beer gravy, and the Short Stout: a fontina-topped, onion-jam-slathered sammie stuffed with short ribs that're braised in Old Rasputin, guaranteeing you won't be left boney (M).
