Kettle Of Fish looks kind of like the living room of a large off-campus college house, with old couches, dartboards on the walls, string lights hanging from the ceiling, and a few TVs showing sports by the bar. During Packers and University of Wisconsin games, this place gets pretty rowdy, but besides that, it’s a low-key spot for drinks in the West Village.

Earl’s Beer & Cheese
Earl’s menu of pig and cheese heavy snacks pairs perfectly with the small but righteous selection of draft beers that they have on tap. Head up north sometime to check it out, and also visit Earl’s sister restaurant around the corner, ABV.
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken
Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken seems primed and ready to be reproduced and franchised all across the country. Whether that’s the actual plan or not, we have no idea. America could only be so lucky. Watch your back KFC. The Bromberg bros are coming for you.
