Craft beer and Asian-inspired small plates are the name of the game at this Nob Hill restaurant which doesn't, as its name might suggest, specialize in barbecue. That said, the comfort food-centric menu does include BBQ pork belly, but the emphasis is on kimchi, umami, and teriyaki flavors -- so expect dishes like tempura fish & chips, a chicken katsu sandwich, and panko-crusted sticky rice. As for the brews, the drink program is curated down to 30 choices on tap, plus a dozen or so wines.
