Beer serves as the backbone of an experience at Rustico, a New American eatery "designed with good times in mind," per the restaurant's website. More than 400 craft brews — one of the largest selections in the area — are in rotation here, which proves Rustico to be a popular destination among beer aficionados.
But beyond Rustico's bustling bar, you're likely to spot families (many with young children) and friends nestled in wooden booths, lingering over wood-fired pizzas, seasonally-influenced salads, and gourmet burgers. In fact, burgers are a real crowd pleaser here, especially The Rustico, which tops a locally-sourced beef patty with aged cheddar and a savory aioli. For dessert, you might sip a Crispin blackberry-pear cider, or sink a fork into a slice of flourless chocolate cake, decorated with a scoop of raspberry sorbet and an equal amount of fluffy chocolate mousse.
Note that Rustico also serves a popular brunch, available between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on weekends.
