If you’re looking for a great meal and a really good beer selection, there’s a “craft bar” in my neighborhood that consistently fits the bill: It’s 503W, and is located at 503 W. Colorado Ave.
The menu includes well-made Korean-inspired dishes such as the 503 Bowl - choice of beef or chicken, seared kimchi, jasmine rice, pickled cucumber, and other veggies topped with a fried egg - for $14). Every bite was a singular treat.
Also: Do NOT skip dessert. I recommend splitting the Sweet Caroline ($9) which is house-made vanilla ice cream rolled in granola, macadamia nut crust and bacon toffee, topped with bourbon creme anglaise, sriracha maple syrup. Sweet and salty heaven.
