Restaurant Roundup: 10 for $10 lunch menu, say goodbye to Fernson on 8th

March 21, 2019

Crave American Kitchen & Sushi Bar in the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown has a new 10 for $10 lunch menu that’s available from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays. Sandwiches come with French fries, fresh fruit or a tabbouleh couscous salad. Substitute a cup of soup or truffle fries for an upcharge.

The Phillips Avenue Diner has switched to its spring feature menu. New choices range from a belly-filling burger topped with fried mac and cheese fritters to a lighter spring salad topped with mango, strawberry and more.

Fernson Brewing Co.’s newest beer, Patcher Pale Ale, rolled off the canning line last week. The 5.5 percent “hazy pale ale” is available at both of Fernson’s taprooms and is headed to liquor store shelves this week. It’s a seasonal beer, so once the supply is sold, it’s gone. Fernson estimates it will be on the market for six to eight weeks.

Speaking of taprooms, the brewery is throwing a farewell party for Fernson on 8th on March 30. The Eighth and Weber location is being replaced by Fernson’s new taproom at Phillips and 12th, which is expected to open in early April. Books n Brewz Pizzeria takes over the Fernson and former Breadico space April 1.

Another local brewery, Hydra Brewing Co., is hosting an unusual event Sunday, Burly-Q and a Brew. Pepper Dupree, also know as Mandi the beertender, will teach participants burlesque dance moves The class is $25 and includes one drink. The lesson starts at 11 a.m., before the brewery opens at 1 p.m. Call or stop in Hydra at 2425 S. Shirley Ave. to register.

Cookies and beer? Remedy Brewing Co. has invited two Girl Scout Brownie and Daisy members to sell cookies at the brewery from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Remedy will offer a menu of suggested beer-and-cookie pairings.

Nikki’s Burrito Express has extended its hours with the warmer weather. The Mexican restaurant at Eighth and Indiana is open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and until 3 p.m. Sunday.

The Juice Stop on Arrowhead Parkway will be closed beginning Monday for a remodeling project. It’s expected to reopen Thursday, March 28. After that, the only location that hasn’t gotten a fresh look yet – the original spot at 26th and Marion – eventually will get a makeover, owner Troy Jansma said.

It’s a little bit of a late notice, but customers who spend $10 at Godfather’s Pizza today can return Monday through Wednesday next week for a free buffet.

And there’s still time for this one: Taco John’s is celebrating National Crunchy Taco Day today by giving away crispy beef tacos. Grab the coupon code on Facebook.
