I've been let down by many a "gastropub" so imagine my surprise when on a rainy night I duck in to Mayberry with half an hour till close. I was looking for a burger, something totally basic and filling to get me through the all-nighter I was about to pull for work.
No dice. The menu was full of complex fare that I just wasn't in the mood for. (Nothing personal; I'd just eaten out a lot this week and wanted something simple.)
I opted for the most basic thing on the menu: a beef cheek ragu over bucatini. What came out was an absurdly large portion of tender beef and chunky vegetables over an admittedly insufficient portion of pasta. Well the sauce was rich and delicious and enough for two meals.
Washed it down with a Troegs brewery Troegenator, which was fine--if not my favorite beer, but what the hell, it's the night before bockfest so I should, right?
