For many years, popular dining and drinking areas of Dallas, from Uptown to Greenville Avenue, have had their share of English-style public houses. But, alas, Deep Ellum has never been able to draw a pub within its midst. That is until Anvil Pub opened in mid- November 2010. Which may explain why -- even on the first weekend of its opening -- the place already had folks from the Deep Ellum neighborhood proclaiming themselves as "regulars." That first weekend, Anvil Pub still smelled of Home Depot, which, coincidentally, is where the family who own and operate the pub bought the supplies needed to build Anvil from the floor up. "Everything but the barstools, the chairs and the metal table bases," came from there, owner Josh Bridges said, while pouring a beer behind the long, dark wood bar. The grease-free "green" kitchen cranks out pub grub ranging from pizzas and wings to "all-natural" burgers from the menu, which boasts lots of vegetarian options. http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/cityofate/2011/05/a_steel_of_a_deal_at_anvil_pub.php
