Another reason to like Facebook: media-savvy places like Saranac Public House announce their weekly specials online.
This week? Bacon Sampler (like bacon could get any better). Five portions made in-house, including maple cured and smoked back. For duck fans, there's cold smoked duck bacon — drizzle with coffee sauce, maple gastrique or plum jam. Add a tall, frosty pint like Mac & Jack's African Amber or any of the other 10 beers currently on tap, and you're in hog heaven.
Elsewhere on the menu: salads, burgers, plenty of appetizers, happy hour specials — try hearty pretzels or Chinese lacquered pork — and comforting entrées like meatloaf.
This gastropub offers gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan as a matter of course in a laid-back environment, with abundant seating indoors and out.
