Food & Drink

A better place to eat when you're 400N outlet-shopping

If you're tired of Firkin around 400N when the hunger sets in from buying 80-packs of draws from the Hanes outlet, you're in luck, because the franchised Irish-y pub just got replaced by the street-slick four40, equipped with bamboo walls, graffiti'd brick, and a decidedly non-pub New American menu

Apparently duck egg rolls w/ plum sauce are new in America, along with peach bruschetta w/ prosciutto, ostrich burgers, and half-pound non-ostrich burgers like the mozzarella/ balsamic reduction/ bruschetta-type tomato topping Tuscan. There're also pastas like the marinara seafood fra diavolo w/ shrimp & mussels, flatbreads (seared ahi w/ arugula & Sriracha vinaigrette), plus house chicken pot pie, lamb sirloin w/ mint demi glace, and a Jameson-sauced salmon, which clearly drinks like a fish

To keep up with that salmon, cozy up to the horseshoe bar and order one of 16 drafts including Dale's Pale Ale and Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, too much of which -- just like visits to the Hanes store -- will result in some very brief conversations.
