EAT & DRINK
Mark Twain Brewing Co. is a popular brewery that serves great beer and classic pub fare such as burgers, wings and barbecue. Many items are named after characters in Twain’s books. If you fall in love with a brew, there are bottles and cans to-go in select varieties. For those who don’t want a pint, there are mimosa flights and wine options.
Foodies should head to LaBinnah Bistro for fine dining with a Mediterranean twist. Including fish and steak, the menu is extensive. Share a Mediterranean sampler for an appetizer and save room for the dessert menu, which features authentic baklava.
