"American craft food and bourbon house" is no longer just the title of the most awesome real estate listing ever, thanks to Harmon Place's Butcher & the Boar. A deceptively large neighborhood noshery with wood stoves dominated by Jack Riebel's skilled hands and penny-tiled floors dominated by Abe Lincoln's skilled face, Butcher puts equal emphasis on bourbon, beer, and shareable plates
Eat: Mainly in the $10/plate range, the menu gets mega-meaty with assorted sausages, free-range boar, Texas hot links, a rotating fish of the month, and lobster grilled cheese, then totally sneaks behind your back with a "vegan chorizo sausage" that will "surprise meat-eaters with its deliciousness", which isn't half as funny as if it surprised vegans by sneakily containing meat, but whatever
Drink: Bolstering an already impressive 30 craft taps (Surly, Fulton, Bells, etc) is their 65-strong bourbon program with everything from major labels (Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace) to rarer single-barrels. Plus, there'll be nightly whiskey shot specials, and high-end stuff available in cheaper, one or two ounce pour options, which could also rightly be called "poor options" (TM!)
Come warmer weather, they'll open a 200-seat beer garden with a separate bar, fire pit, mural (by local artists like Adam Turman), and a high-top table cut from a tree that used to occupy the space, so hang out there and, just like a good real estate agent, you'll never get listless.
