A combined bar and barbecue spot, Hardwood features a dozen beers on tap, including one brewed on site. Classically trained chef Jake Kwan-Rosenbush’s barbecue is a mixture of different styles, flavors and techniques and relies on local ingredients. In addition to spice rubbed brisket, there are also two kinds of chicken wings, one Chinese salt and pepper style and another that is smoked and tossed with white barbecue sauce. Meats are served on platters or traditionally by the pound with all the classics sides. The kale salad is a standout with broccoli, cabbage, dried cranberries and sweet onion dressing.
