Can’t find a nice place to watch the games this year? Look no further than Brackets which could easily be a sports fans paradise with TVs every place your eyes can wander. Add in the specialty cocktails, impressive wine list and the mouth watering food then you might just be looking at your home away from home.
Originally starting out as a gourmet pizza restaurant Bracket’s has evolved in what they describe as an upscale eatery with a sports bar attitude. Chef Stefon Rishel has taken over and revamped the menu giving old sports bar classics a modern twist and just browsing the appetizers this becomes evident with items like braised short rib nachos and ahi tuna nachos.
The chef suggests you try the pork chop and mac entree on your visit with the pork chop being brined then grilled and served with a 5 cheese mac. Other notable mentions off the menu are the lemoncello jumbo wings and of course the wood fired pizzas that started the restaurant here.
Now with football season in full swing, Brackets has brought out former Dallas Cowboy great Deion Sanders to host a Monday Night Football party each week and also rolling out a special “Prime Time” menu for Monday nights with great drink and food specials and of course you can watch the game with Deion.
As for the food itself there are many great choices, I started off with the braised short rib nachos, these were so good I could have easily eaten a pound of them, great flavor and not too heavy so you have room to finish an entree, for that I chose the Brackets Burger a huge gut busting burger made from Kobe beef and topped with Blue Cheese, Pancetta, Basil Mustard, Arugula, Chili Peppers & Onion Ring all on a brioche bun.
The burger has tons of flavor each bite seemed to have been different from the last as your taste buds detect each of these many toppings. This is a burger that you need to bring your meat loving friends out to try.
Keeping with the fun aspect of a sports bar Brackets holds a beer pong contest and has numerous games you do not find in many places such as ping pong tables and shuffleboard. On game day you can take your pick of which game to watch with the added bonus of having game audio available in 3 different areas. Brackets is available for your parties and events so please give them a try the next time you are looking for a place to have fun and eat great food.
