Ten Best Gastropubs in Broward and Palm Beach Counties
2. Tipsy Boar
Situated just west of Young Circle, on Harrison St., The Tipsy Boar is South Broward's defining gastropub. Where else in Hollywood can you find a French onion burger, stacked with gruyere, caramelized onions, and crushed garlic croutons, to pair with a Southampton Biere De Mars or a Green Flash Palate Wrecker? 40 taps, a modest wine list (including Beaujolais by the glass), and custom cocktails make every booze hound happy. Ask them to whip up a Moscow mule complete with required copper mugs and enjoy the evening.
Chef Daniel Naumko heads up this small West Boca pork-based establishment. Let's get one thing out of the way: good luck finding a menu item without meat. That's one of the reasons why we love it here. From the decadent wagyu duck fat burger (complete with bacon and a fried egg), to the roasted bone marrow served with brioche, there's nothing we can find that we wouldn't want to eat forever. But then there's the most killer beer bottle selection that includes rarities such as Brasserie Fantome Artist #1 and the Nogne/Mikkeller/Brewdog collaboration beer Horizon Tokyo Black, a super boozy 16% a.b.v. imperial stout. Oh yeah, and the eight rotating draft beers are usually out of this world selections too. There must be some kind of dark magic afoot.
