Something Different in the CR

With the snow gone (for now), and the temperatures finally more reasonable, Average Joe has decided to venture outside for a culinary adventure. The other night Joe found himself at one of his beloved local haunts, the Capital City Gastropub.

It is easy to see why the Gastropub is one of Joe’s favorite spots. It offers quality food in a fun atmosphere andthe recently renovated restaurant feels much bigger, with a  more modern, relaxed environment to cater to the area’s young professionals.

The menu is relatively small but every dish Joe has had there has been delicious (he is particularly fond of pork meatballs with salsa verde and polenta). The bar also features a wide array of craft beers -  many of which are made in upstate New York - and the bartenders know how to make a mean cocktail.

One of the things Joe loves about the Gastropub is the creativity on display, the chefs here are certainly not afraid to express themselves with out of the box thinking. The menu changes frequently and the new dishes often feature fun and unique twists that one does not see in many restaurants around the CR (Still trying to get this off the ground).

With a new season upon us (hopefully), Joe suggests trying something new and there is no better place to do it than the Capital City Gastropub.
