Cask Republic Restaurant Review

: Dark wood tables, filament bulb lighting and a cozy fireplace set the scene at this casual gastropub featuring an eclectic menu and classic as well as specialty beers. The menu includes cheese and charcuterie that pair well with the draught and bottled beers on offer. A few wines are available by the glass, but they're outnumbered three to one by single malt scotches. Other appetizers fit for sharing and pairing are Bavarian pretzels and bacon-infused popcorn. The array of wood-fired flatbread toppings includes tender grilled steak with cheddar and beer cheeses sweetened with maple syrup. Tomatoes, pancetta, wild mushrooms, marinated artichokes and ricotta join forces for another savory option. Large plates range from burgers to fish dishes like pan-roasted, red miso pineapple-glazed mahi mahi and shrimp with vegetable lo mein. Desserts are inventive and highlight comforting selections, such as a mixed berry pudding and a cinnamon peach trifle.
