Restuarant downstairs Churchkey. More upcale restuarant look and wibe, brick walls, glass, wood, fancy lamps. Lucky to get at table without reservation a wednesday at 6:15. Share tap's with Churchkey upstairs so same great selection, you can see the pumplines behind the bar. Had 2 different pasta dishes for dinner, both really good. Good service and fine prices. Another place we would had loved to have stayed a lot longer at / revisit.

After many trips upstairs, I have now made a nice brunch here in Nov 2017. My first ever trip downstairs. The food was really nice, and the draft list was exactly as good as the one upstairs. I'm sure the bottle list is just as good as well, though I didn't go for any bottles on this particular visit. Highly recommended if you are looking for more of a restaurant vibe, more light, and otherwise a similar draft list / feel.

Came here 3.12.2017. On the web they show 5 pm as opening time, but they did not let us in as it seems the real opening time is 5.30 pm. No flexibility at all. Was in the restaurant only for 1 minute, did not like it, but was influenced by the stupid receptionist. They have the same beer selection as Churchkey upstairs, which is excellent and the food menu looked decent.

Visited on a Wednesday evening in early March 2015. Upscale bar feel, classy with cozy hints. Happy to hang out with solidfunk, Travlr and jercraigs for the evening, and the bar staff was wonderful. Tried the gnocchi with crispy pork, which was delicious, and sampled some other delights. We tried what seemed like a ton of half pours of tasty brews from the draft list. Would love to return one day and take a peek at the bottle list next time too. (5/10/14/9/8/17) 92

Visited on 10th October 2017. Really smart ground floor restaurant. The decor is very cool, very modern. Plenty of seating, it may be a little close together for my liking. Beer list is great with an excellent tap list and huge bottle list. Service was super attentive, the food was excellent and prices reflected the quality of the food but it was excellent value. Really liked this place, with Church Key upstairs it's a must visit.

The decor here is blandly attractive, similar to most any casual-fine dining restaurant in modern America. Lots of wood, minimalist artwork, edison lightbulbs. The beer list is identical to Churchkey and is world-class. The bar accommodated an off-menu cocktail request perfectly; like all NRG places the liquor and wine selection is given nearly the same reverence and attention to detail as the beer.

For dinner we enjoyed two vegetable focused small plates, both creative and delicious, followed by fresh pastas which were great but not outstanding. Service was attentive and kind, if a bit rehearsed. The waiter also did a fantastic job helping a confused elderly couple next to us. If and when I return I look forward to hanging out at the quieter bar in Birch and Barley while the party rages upstairs.

Decent place, I’ve visited many times, for private events and tastings to family meals to business dinners. Always turns out great.

Had dinner here with John R. and they had all the same beers as upstairs. Food was great and we enjoyed pairing the great beers with the food. A great restaurant.
