Branch 27 closed in August 2013. Enjoy the memories…
West Town’s Branch 27 is the new kid on the block. But the building itself has been there awhile — it used to be the 27th ward library, which ultimately inspired the name of the current establishment. Sporting a wildly varied American-style menu, Branch 27 joins the ranks of places flanking Chicago Avenue and aims to offer an upscale pub experience at a reasonable price. Does it manage it? We took a first taste the other night. Listen in and find out.
00:00 – 03:07 First Impressions — the hot guys, the dining space, etc.
03:08 – 04:55 Grilled octopus and beet salad
04:56 – 07:11 Tuna burger — a tad overdone
07:12 – 08:06 Lamb? Not so much. But good garnish!
08:07 – 09:18 Mac and cheese and fries
09:19 – 09:46 Bread pudding is not so good
09:47 – 11:09 Great drink menu — variety of wine and beer at good prices
11:10 – 14:08 Wrap-up and sign-off
