Gastropubs (or as I call it food, fun, & beer) have been sprouting up all over town. BRC is one of them that I've passed countless of times, caught the giant red cock (the avian kind) statue from the corner of my eye, and thought to myself, "I really need to put this place on my "To Try" list." So when some friends wanted to meet up there, I was happy to oblige. The marriage of a well-rounded beer selection and good food makes for a great hangout spot IMHO. Although I'm not much of a beer drinker, I love the artful process that goes into making a good brew which is enough to reel me in.
The deep red damask wallpaper and black-and-white photos create an inviting and cozy atmosphere. I also have to give kudos to the staff who went above and beyond to accommodate all of our issues. The fish was cooked perfectly, and I'm sure to stick to the seafood selection the next time I return. The casual atmosphere is great for just drinking with some buddies, but there are also plenty of tasty bites to satisfy those food cravings.
