    This is a great place to eat and drink. Every menu item has been thought through. As others have noted, the Bird and Pig is delicious. Desserts are great, if you have room. Nice list of draught beer.

    The food and service here is excellent if a little slow.The relaxed atmosphere made that entirely acceptable to me. The mojo pork with asian salad sandwich was excellent.

    Always ask what the daily special is. The Bricks knows how to make simple food tantalize your taste buds with unusually delightful and unexpected flavor combinations.

    The Bricks uses Blue Coat gin, the smoothest gin I've ever had - and it's American, too. Try the James Bond (Blue Coat gin + champagne).

    The black bean burger is really mushy and dry. It's a chore to chew it and swallow it down. Only order The side of potato salad if you LOVE mustard because this one note is all you're going to taste.
