Block & Larder
just opened on Tennyson Street, featuring a chophouse-style menu from chef Lucas Forgy, who owns the place along with his brothers Jason and Aaron. Although the three brothers also own beer mecca Freshcraft
, Block & Larder focuses more on the food and on cocktails than on craft brews. "We wanted to do our take on a chophouse and mix it with New American dining," explains Jason Forgy. "Everyone knows we like beer, but we also really like meat." And if the attention to detail that the Forgys have put into bringing in some of the best beers in the country to Freshcraft are any indication, Block & Larder should be a hit with fans of house-butchered meats and more unusual cuts of meat.
