Marrying two very separate entities can be risky, unless you're living in Utah with Bill Paxton, and haven't gotten to the season where he decides to run for Congress. Willing to take risks usually reserved for residents of the Beehive State, Canary Square, opening tomorrow.
Essentially a marriage of the concepts at Coda & Common Ground, CS's a neighborhood bar/eatery (from the cats behind both of those spots) slingin' seasonally inspired, locally sourced grub in the 113-seat former Alchemist, overhauled w/ reclaimed wood beams, a 20-seat dark wood bar, a giant garage door opening to a 60-seat patio, and brushed metal/black chairs each made from 111 recycled Coca-Cola bottles, but not 112, as there wasn't enough Room, what with all the players in there. Hearty comfort fare includes a slow-cooked pork chop fire-roasted on their wood-burning grill and served w/ local apple sauce; free-range chicken w/ bacon, sauteed brussels sprouts, and roasted radishes; and an upscale mac and cheese crafted with a semi-soft, strong aroma'd fromage from Italy's Val Taleggio -- cousin to Val Kilmer Taleggio, though only stinks At First Sight. There's also handheld deliciousness like an olive oil-drizzled Serrano ham and Manchego baguette; a cranberry jam'd Taleggio and apple on grilled sourdough; and a 2-year aged Grafton cheddar wood-grilled burger plated w/ thick cut fries seasoned with secret spices, chosen over Top Secret spices, cause, well, Val Kilmer's in that, too.
For snacks and suds, there's a charcuterie board stocked w/ house made pates and sausage, and a fresh popcorn of the day (marshmallow/chocolate, chili cheese, habanero compound butter), all wash-downable with over 30 draft beers like Kona Brewing's Pipeline Porter, Bear Republic XP Pale Ale, Otter Creek Copper Ale, and Arrogant Bastard, though you'd be too if you had three wives, and a supporting role in Boxing Helena.
