This is not your average brewpub, and the changes reach far beyond producing pints of beer that you actually want to drink. Small turns out plates of food that look like they belong in a Stephan Pyles restaurant and then somehow manages to charge you as little as 10 bucks for them. Misti Norris is in the kitchen, and her time at FT33 is evident in plates that involve several components and then several garnishes more. While these plates sometimes get a little crazy, there’s enough beautiful cooking here to warrant experimentation. A great place to start is with any of the pasta dishes. Don’t miss the tagliarini dressed in a buttery sauce and covered with a paper-thin shroud of pancetta. Don’t miss the booze either. The peppercorn pilsner seems destined for awards and the cocktail program provides an elevated take on classic drinks without the fussiness you find at many Dallas cocktail bars.
