Frank Zappa once immortalized a timeless, beautiful combo in his epic eight-minute romp, Sushi 'n Beer. Oh wait, that was "T**ties 'n Beer". Either way, you're about to get the first two together, at the beautiful new bi-level palace Central Beer Garden and Sushi Central Lounge. The dirty:
Sushi Central Lounge: The ground floor fishery's got a wide-open floor dotted with red booths and (yay!) a giant butterfly painting on the wall, and boasts a menu ranging from spicy octopus salad, to specialty rolls like the Bahamas (tuna, scallions, dragon fruit, avocado, persimmons, caviar spread, and special sauce), to cooked rolls like the crab/ cucumber/ avocado/ marinated tuna Over the Top, and anyone who thinks you can't take it down is full of Bull. Hurley.
Central Beer Garden: Head up (either stairs on the right side of SCL, or outdoor guys if you're that afraid of wasabi) to a sprawling space with flatscreens galore, huge high-backed wood booths, and low-top tables at which to take down a brief but drinking-staple-heavy menu with pizzas, sandwiches (pulled pork, Italian sausage & peppers...), wings, and even a bento box from downstairs, plus suds from 60+ taps rarely seen in the Grove, including Affligem Blond, Shipyard Old Thumper ESB, Oskar Blues G'Knight Imperial Red, Belhaven Scottish Ale, and Harpoon IPA, providing yet another thing that's a fantastic timeless combo with beer: massive, spear-like instruments.
