It’s easy to work up an appetite while playing bocce in the Game Room—luckily Peter Coenen’s menu includes a big soft pretzel, served with frothy beer cheese to take care of that. $8.
A double house-made tortilla padded with rice and beans can barely contain this pork stew, with hunks of tender pork bathed in a spicy red chili sauce. $2.30.
Here’s a dish that makes good on its name: Crazy Bird Crazy Good Fries are crunchy, piled with melted cheese, white gravy, truffle oil and crisp shards of duck bacon. $8.
The sleeper hit of the seafood menu is this dish of garlicky, velvety chickpea flour fries, brightened with lemon zest, herbs and salty pecorino. $6.
It always tastes like the height of summer at Vera with this tomato bread, lightly grilled and topped with crushed tomatoes, garlic and a sprinkle of sea salt. It’s a must-order to start any meal. $5.
