I finally made my way to Bluejacket, a brewery and tavern, on Friday night in my hood.
It was a scene. I had sort of anticipated it being one since there had been so much buzz about this place before it had even opened up. I will admit, it was cool. The brewery is set in one of the old boilermaker warehouses, so it has that industrial-edgy feel, but also manages to incorporate a cozy-tavern feel as well – which is saying a lot since Friday night was rainy and very, cold!
Since the bar area was so packed, my friends Meg and Maria and I were able to snag a table in the restaurant section of the place. There were nice wooden tables of varying dinner party sizes, all had votive candles glowing on their tops.
I decided to order a Bluejacket original, the White Album, a hoppy hefeweizen.
The three of us were having such a great time we decided to stay for dinner.
Meg and I shared the crab deviled eggs appetizer.
And then I ordered the Tuscan Kale Caesar.
I was very impressed with the their menu – lots of different choices – salads, burgers, pastas, and various meat options (sausages, baby back ribss, etc)
I will definitely be coming back here!
