The gang's (almost) all beer! Restaurant roll call for May
Sassafras has brought new light to a former black hole.
Several new brewpubs rolled out this month, as well as the Lowry Beer Garden -- and there are many more beery spots brewing. But the gang isn't all beer: Last month saw dozens of other eateries open, which specialize in everything from upscale street tacos to vegan tamales to breakfasts to burgers...lots of burgers.
Here's our restaurant roll call for May:
Prosciutto and egg salad at the Lowry Beer Garden.
