Rate-A-Restaurant #358: Eagle Rock Public House (Eagle Rock)
Restaurant: Eagle Rock Brewery Public House
Location: 1627 Colorado Blvd (Eagle Rock)
Type of restaurant: Gastropub
We stipulated: Date night! Looking for a place to grab a quick dinner before moving on to a nearby event.
They stipulated: "Here at Eagle Rock Public House, we believe that an elevated dining experience is matched perfectly with great beers, but often under-appreciated and difficult to find. Co-founder/Executive Chef Jerry Su has developed an amazing menu using seasonal and sustainable ingredients of the highest quality. Personally selecting the finest produce to use from the local farmers’ market, he artistically crafts unique dishes for guests to enjoy with our carefully curated craft beer list. With literally thousands of styles of beers that offer an incredibly wide variety of flavor profiles, (in our opinion) beers are the best option for all sorts of food. Collectively, we wanted to create a concept to share our passions with other like-minded people, and we hope you love the food and beer as much as we do!"
What we ordered: Scallop (raisin miso, pineapple, seaweed emulsion, beef bushi) $18; Fried cod sandwich (manifesto batter, slaw, malt vinegar aioli) $13; churrones (Mexican hot chocolate) $8.
High point: The scallops were fantastic... and you can rarely go wrong with churros.
Low point: XXX.
Overall impression: Eagle Rock Brewery has long offered its beverages in its Glassell Park location, but it's great to finally add some gastropub fare to the mix. (I was also glad to see the disappointing and never-open Fatty's finally move out of the space.)
Will we return: Yes, we will be back to try the ever-changing menu.
