As a denizen of South Lamar with a new reason to stay close to home, restaurants along our beloved thoroughfare are of utmost importance. So it’s hard to not get very excited about the opening menu for Barley Swine (see below), the new gastropub opening down the street. Brought to us by Odd Duck proprietor Bryce Gimore, they promise to compliment the bevy of delicious items below with a variety of great wines and craft beers. How soon can I get a table?
