Is it a bar or a restaurant? There’s certainly no indication from its nondescript exterior that the Reserve would serve anything but beer. But behind the front door is a bar that serves filet mignon and seared Scottish salmon, along with more usual bar fare such as fried calamari and a gourmet fajita platter. Granted, there’s not much delineation between the bar area and dining tables, and televisions are still a viewable distraction from the dining area, but calling the food pub grub is a grave disservice. Just call it dinner.
