After the closure of The Fat Dog in Montrose, former employees of its previous concept (Barru) have opened Basin 141, a neighborhood gastropub with familiar bites, craft brews, and a full bar program. Owners Joe and David Friedman opened the restaurant on October 3 to mostly positive reception from locals. The menu has everything from beet and kale salads to tacos, burger, steak sandwich, and fish & chips. Desserts feature specialty donuts and a chocolate bread pudding. There's a pretty good happy hour selection as well, with everything from "K-town" wings to pork belly tacos and $3 pints of Anchor Steam.
Craft beer geeks can get behind the guest taps, which might be anything from Green Flash IPA, Dude's Brewing porter, or Craftman's Heavenly hefeweizen while those looking for specialty cocktails might find something worthwhile in the Angeleno Julep made with Bulleit Rye or Four Aces, put together with tequila, St. Germain, and cucumber.
Brunch time has more of a Mexican slant, like chilaquiles, huevos rancheros, carnitas, and fish tacos while intoxicants extent to bottomless mimosas, sangria, and micheladas. Hours go from 3 p.m. to 12 a.m. on weekdays, opening 11 a.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. on Sunday, perfect for NFL viewing.
