Reno - Brewer's Cabinet

I had a Groupon for here or might not have gone since beer is never my beverage of choice - well, except with Mexican or Asian food :) But I'm really glad we did. It's where the Chocolate Bar used to be at Arlington and Liberty, just south of the river. It's got a nice casual vibe to it. Also outdoor seating.

We shared the Pig 3 Ways which included pork rillettes, seared pork belly and smoked bacon, grainy mustard, pretzel bread and cheese (?gouda). The rillettes was really more like pulled pork but still tasty. The bacon was so good, perfectly crispy without being overcooked. And the pork belly was GREAT! Scored on the top side and then deeply seared. The other dish was the Housemade Tater Tots. The 'tots' are probably 1-1/2" long and close to an inch in diameter, fried up to be crispy. In a bowl with crispy bacon pieces, green onions and cheesy sauce and ketchup, topped with an overeasy egg. I was prepared to be disappointed when the ketchup came drizzled on the top. But this was just a great, gooey, cheesy, bacony potato dish! Even sharing this was WAY too much food for the two of us. We thought with the addition of a salad, it could feed three or four. YMMV.

They make some of their beers and have "friends' draughts." And a few wines so I was fine. Don't remember what dark beer Bob had but he liked it.

I want to go back and work my way through this menu. Oh, and the staff were friendly and excited about this new place. Check it out. Please.
