Brickhouse Bar & Grill blurs the line between restaurant and bar in the best possible way. You’d feel just as comfortable coming here after a Giants game to recap what went wrong in the fifth as you would to grab a bite on a workday - maybe just don’t drink during the latter. The food here is great, from the salads to the yellowfin sandwich, but the best thing is the pulled pork sandwich.
