For the fourth year in a row Pub & Kitchen is going country. Tuesday night, the popular bar at 20th and Lombard takes a decidedly country turn. There will be $2 beer specials, $4 whiskey shots and a special food menu.
So dust off your cowboy boots and head on down, it’s always a fun time (despite the country music).

It seems fitting for Allagash Brewing Company to have released a cookbook, since their product is complex in a way that allows for a perfect pairing between beer and food. Acclaimed chef James Simpkins went on a culinary tour of the country and came back with a series of dishes and recipes highlighting the nuances each beer has to offer. With visuals by photographer Brian Smestad, this book gives home chefs new perspective on cooking with beer.

So last night was out first-ever Open Stove cocktail night–in which we took the Open Stove formula of public competition, secret ingredients, surprise twists and loud smack-talking and applied it to the craft of drink slinging. By the time the night was done, two of the city’s best barmen had gone toe-to-toe in COOK‘s culinary Thunderdome, everyone in the joint was swimming in high-test happy juice, and a victor had been chosen.
Here’s how it all shook out–in pictures, courtesy of COOK’s #1 shooter, Yoni Nimrod.
Hey, what are those guys doing with that sack full of kittens…?
In late August we alerted our fine readers that the Churchill Burger at Pub & Kitchen was in its final days. And last night was indeed the last night you could order the bone marrow-glazed meal on a bun.
Tonight a new menu debuts at Pub & Kitchen full of tempting fall dishes and just a single burger. The $18 sandwich is a Creekstone Farms custom dry-aged blend patty, topped with double-cut bacon, pickled red onions and Shropshire blue cheese, served on a Hudson Bakery challah roll.

Dan Clark of Pub & Kitchen has hung the above letter in the window of the former Meme at 2201 Spruce Street. The letter details Clark’s plan for the space. It will be a 36-seat restaurant that will not serve hard alcohol and will not offer live music or entertainment.
Former Meme owner and chef David Katz will be heading to Tavro 13 in New Jersey with Terence Feury. Michael Klein says Katz will help with the opening and will develop the wine list.
As for Katz’s Meme location, a liquor license has popped up registered to Dan Clark, owner of nearby Pub & Kitchen. No word yet on whether this will wind up being the Bedford Cafe concept the P&K team wanted to open at 20th and Kater. That plan was short-circuited when neighbors, who were against the cafe, bought the building themselves.
