You can stop in to one of Two Stones Pub’s four locations for high-quality lunch and dinner fare with a litany of craft beers on tap and a relaxed atmosphere. The late-night menu is a major cut above the typical after-hours bar food, especially the Gorgonzola BLT salad. The lemon-basil hummus offers a fun twist on the classic. Entrées such as baby bob braised short ribs rise above with accompaniments such as celery root-parsnip puree, roasted baby carrots, fresh herbs and natural beer jus reduction.
