Review: Library Alehouse
Get there early because this place fills up, but sometimes you can get bar seating if you get there before happy hour.
This isn't your typical bar food either. They have amazing salads, sandwiches and soups, and plenty of beer on tap. Love their black bean soup, but tried their corn chowder the other day and it was sweet and delicious. Also tried their Golden Beet salad and wasn't disappointed. And just because I had to (plus felt like I ate pretty healthy), I got their fried pickled chips with a smoky chipotle-type sauce.
Tips: Get there early, best to go early in the week or for lunch if you can. They also accept the KCRW Fringe Benefits card on food and alcohol.
