I've heard really good things about The Salt House, but I have yet to go.


In my neighborhood, a Japanese version opened last Friday, called Izakaya opened in Japantown and I expect to try it in the next few days.


Others that come to mind have pretty mediocre food (The Bitter End, for example) and I have yet to make the crawl of English pubs (but that could be considered mediocre food as well - except for us Anglophiles!)

Umm...what are they? A place where you can get down and dirty with the locals beerwise but eat good food?


From Wiki


term for a public house ("pub") which specializes in high-quality food a step above the more basic "pub grub." The name is a portmanteau of pub and gastronomy and was coined in 1991 when David Eyre and Mike Belben opened a pub called The Eagle in Clerkenwell, London. They placed emphasis on the quality of food served.


Gastropubs usually have an atmosphere which is relaxed and a focus on offering a particular cuisine prepared as well as it is in the best restaurants. Staying true to the format requires a menu that complements the assortment of beers and wines the gastropub offers.


Some describe gastropubs as the Anglo-equivalent of the French brasserie or the Japanese izakaya.


Marks & Spencer also have a range of ready meals which they market under the label "Gastropub".
