Southwest’s ‘Spirit’ taps the Tap
This month’s issue of probably the best on-board magazine calls the Standard Tap one of four gastropubs (gastropub: good food in a pub atmosphere) in the nation worth a visit. The blurb comes after an article on the Filling Station in LA, where the chef is Harrison Ford’s son.
In the review:
“The Tap might be considered a brewpub, what with the hand-pumped local brews, the dartboard, and the jukebox. But owner Paul Kimport’s menu, scribbled on a blackboard, pushes this neighborhood spot up the epicurean ladder. The sausage is homemade, and the seafood is just-caught fresh.”
If you see more out-of-towners than usual on your next visit, you’ll know why.
