Bread & Barley, Covina, CA

Bread & Barley Restaurant Review

: As the gastropub concept made its way inland, some good cooking emerged in the ’burbs, and Bread & Barley is a great example. Small plates like samba cauliflower, portobello fries with truffle aïoli for dipping, and chicken wings are offered, as well as an intriguing array of burgers that includes bison with spicy mayo or beef with bacon, Gorgonzola-fried onions and barbecue sauce. Larger plates include grilled rib-eye steak, a nifty smoked Gouda mac ‘n’ cheese, and beercan Cajun chicken, washed down with a choice of more than 20 craft beers on tap. There’s also a short but worthy wine list, and desserts include a big hunk of sticky toffee pudding. The setting is a hip combination of exposed brick, wood and stainless steel.
