First things first, if you are asking what is a Gastropub; as per wikipedia: Gastropub refers to a bar and restaurant that serves high-end beer and food.

Being close to my office, I have come here a few times for a happy hour. The constant draw seems to be a combinatoin of the happy hour special and surprisingly good food.

Lets Start with the Happy Hour! The deal is weekdays from 4pm to 7pm, 2 for 1 Wine by the glass and Absolut Martinis. They wine list has a great deal of options, with the Malbec being one of my favorites. I have never personally had any of the martinis but the selection is Dirty, Cosmo, Metropolitan, Peartini, Mango and Pomegranite. Being that I never gave them a shot, I have heard the Peartini is the best. Which one is your favorite? If you are a beer drinker, they have about 15 different beers on draught as well.

What about the food? SLIDERS! Must go for the sliders, they have 5 types of sliders. For me it is a toss up between the Angus Chimicurri and the Lamb slider. I would suggest staying away from the Crab Cake Slider. I didn’t enjoy them at all. Good as a crab cake, but not as a slider. Hey I have to be honest here. Few other stand out dishes are Truffled Blue Cheese Fries, Tuna Nachos, Moroccan Spiced Lamb Sandwich and the Filet Steak Sandwich.

Open Door is quickly becoming the go to spot after work, if you work in the Financial District you might need to check it out.
