A couple of weeks ago, the team behind Lure Fishbar (John McDonald, Josh Pickard, and Josh Capon) opened their new winepub, Burger & Barrel (or B for short), in the old Centrovino space, about a block away from Lure. Despite relatively little fanfare, the burger joint (featuring Red Hook Winery on tap hence the barrel part) has already been (sorry) luring them in. If youve found it hard to snag a seat, you might want to try stopping in for lunch service started yesterday. In addition to the lunch and dinner menu thats served from 11:30 a.m. till midnight on weekdays and till 2 a.m. on weekends (see it here), you can get the following daily sandwiches, priced between $12 and $18 including fries and available till 3 p.m. Brunch starts this weekend; well show you that menu as soon as its ready.
Monday- Short Rib Reuben with braised short rib, horseradish, Russian dressing, coleslaw and Taleggio cheese.
Tuesday- Italian Hero with spicy sopressata, Genoa salami, roasted ham, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, onion and red wine vinaigrette
Wednesday- Crispy Chicken Club with bacon, lettuce, tomato and avocado mayonnaise
Thursday- Meatball Parm Sub with mozzarella and tomato ragu
Friday- Filet Mignon Sandwich with caramelized onions, gruyere cheese and dijonnaise
