Formally Dresner’s, Flight is a new gastropub that offers numerous beers, wines and spirits, all of which are available in flights. The restaurant features a bright, glass enclosed, café area in front, a long wooden bar and plenty more tables throughout.
Happy hour is an ideal time to stop in, as the offerings include $5 small plates, $5 glasses or wine, select beers and $7 specialty cocktails. The beer list is quite extensive, giving you the option to try larger more prominent craft beers as well as smaller, less common beers. You can never go wrong with anything from Sixpoint.
The menu options are vast and includes several dishes with a Thai and other Asian influences. The best of these dishes was the steamed PEI mussels with Thai style coconut curry sauce. There are other sauce options, but stick with the spicy Thai version.
If you’re not sure which direction to go, the seafood flight let’s you sample a crab cake, calimari and a roasted jumbo shrimp. The winner here was the crab cake, which can be ordered on it’s own, with a mango-pineapple-papaya slaw with lime vinaigrette.
For a larger, more substantial meal, there are pub classics like fish and chips, fried chicken and rack of lamb. Sandwiches also fill the menu, so you can come in for lunch and not be stuffed to the gills, while enjoying a tasty cheeseburger.
Before you go, don’t sleep on the sticky toffee pudding. Maybe even get some iced cream and combine them for the ultimate dessert. While Flight featured some delicious gems, the menu may be a bit too large for it’s own good and offering a bit too wide of an array of options. The prices however are very reasonable for the neighborhood and is a great place to stop and enjoy a pint of beer.
