Cask Republic 

American $$$

The second location of this American eatery by Skál Restaurant Group features a well-curated craft beer list (more than 50 draughts and 80 bottles), along with small plates—try the smoked short-rib meatballs and kale salad—and entrées like a house-made lamb pastrami Reuben with caramelized onions and smoked Gouda; grass-fed Silver Fern Farms filet mignon with a Gorgonzola crust; and various wood-fired pizzas. The staff is well versed in beer pairings, and cocktails feature spirits barrel-aged in-house. Open daily for lunch and dinner; bar open late night. Reservations highly recommended.
