At the end of January I visited the Black Stag Brewery to check in on their progress before their opening. Tomorrow they are launching their new lunch menu and I had the opportunity to go back to see the finished space and sample a few of their featured lunch dishes.
The space is warm, inviting, simple and elegant. You can really tell that a lot of attention went into the little details that make this brewery a vibrant new hot spot on Mass St.
Let's talk about the food. You guys! Chef Dane has crafted some really awesome takes on typical pub fare. The Smash'd Burger is the Big Mac that you always wanted. A delicious, messy, mouth watering burger with twin patties, white cheddar, lettuce, tomato confit and special sauce on a challah bun. You will devour it!
A scratch kitchen offering Steak, Pasta, Seafood with shareable plates and sweets.
Also on the lunch menu are a Pale Ale Battered Fish Sandwich, Fried Chicken Breast Sandwich, Cacio e Pepe Pasta and a Cubano Sandwich. Every single one of these dishes are just savory, delicious and you will want to try them all. My suggestion is to take three friends to lunch and try them all. Oh, and did I mention they have beer? Haha! I didn't try the beer this afternoon, however, I will be going back for dinner this weekend and will update. I am sure it's tasty!
