With some people in town for a wedding, a bunch of us met up at Resurrection Ale House on Gray’s Ferry. It’s what you could call a gastropub. It’s smack dab in the middle of a residential area on Gray’s Ferry, across from Naval Square. There’s not much around it, but it’s not too far from Grace Tavern. The good thing is, finding parking is actually quite easy. They have a number of beers on draft, and many more bottled. And they have very reasonably priced food.
M ordered this Brooklyn Local 1, one of Brooklyn Brewery’s big bottle beers, and he absolutely loved it. He couldn’t stop talking about. And he ended up ordering another one. The shame is, he lives in CA, and he won’t be able to get this at home.
The soon-to-be groom ordered the twice fried chicken. I’m assuming that it is fried twice, which makes it doubly awesome, and is drizzled with spiced honey. Delicious! It is served with a watermelon and basil salad, and let me tell you, this is an excellent way to serve watermelon! I need to figure out how to make this, stat!
I got an open face lamb meatball sandwich. The lamb balls were served on top of toasted bread with pesto, and topped with red sauce and cheese. This thing was tasty, but a little difficult to eat. You couldn’t pick it up and eat it as a sandwich, so you just had to fork and knife it. It also came with fries and the curry dipping sauce. I really liked these fries as they were thin and crispy and not greasy, and the curry dipping sauce was a super nice touch.
I really liked this place. It just felt nice. It was light and airy inside. It’s small, but nicely small, because too many people can’t be inside. The clientele was nice and mixed – young, old, hipster, hippie, yuppie, whatever. This is not a pretentious place at all. The service was fine, especially considering that we were probably a pain in the ass, and probably loud too. I can’t wait to go back there!
