First rating, mainly to spite t0rin0. This is the fourth restaurant in this space; originally called The Gem, then Felipe’s, then Don Felix, and now The Pub. The interior is pretty much the same as all previous places, and the draft beer selection has slightly improved. About half macro (Sam, Blue Moon, etc.) and half California macro-craft (Stone, Green Flash, Ballast Point). The biggest difference from the previous joints is the food. When I first read the menu I thought it was way too ambitious, with duck confit, certain pasta preparations, etc. But upon eating, it was done very well. They also have a solid craft cocktail lineup, which I recommend over a beer in this case.
