Stick to the basics at this neighborhood watering hole, and you’ll be rewarded with $3 microbrews and enormous portions of delicious pub grub. Pizzas come from the adjoining Robey Pizza Company, where the cracker-like crust and spicy sausage on the eponymous pie make an addictive meal. Ditto for the “silver flash,” a thick Black Angus burger spilling over with sweet grilled onions, melted Swiss and crisp curls of bacon. But skip the bland hummus and boring quesadilla. The warm wood tones in the room will make you want to stay forever, which comes in handy when you eat too much to stand up.
