With a menu befitting a beer list that includes Blanche de Bruxelles and Franziskaner Dunkelweizen, THE PORTER
has sophisticated but approachable noshes, as well as a fair dose of dishes that are suitable to the sloshed. Hush puppies are graced with applewood-smoked bacon and served with a side of Fuji applesauce. Calamari is fried along with lemon slices and jalapenños. The Caesar is served with white anchovies and a poached egg. Plump shrimp and sliced portobello laze on a bed of cheese grits with a pillow of truffle oil. The best part: Only one item on the menu the house-made kraut and beer brats tops $10. 1156 Euclid Ave. 404-223-0393. www.theporterbeerbar.com.
