One of Mount Vernon’s oldest spots is easily one of my favorites. The Brewer’s Art has been a Mount Vernon destination for over 21 years. The restaurant has two menus, a bar menu and a dining room menu. You can get the dining room menu at the bar but you cannot get the bar menu in the dining room. Pro tip, the mac and cheese here is fantastic – sit at the bar and order this (it made my best of 2017 list).
During my most recent visit, my girlfriend and I grabbed two seats at the bar. It was such a cold night, we needed something as comforting as the mac and cheese. Also, there’s happy hour specials on the Brewer’s Art beers.
Because the Mac N Cheese is one of my favorite dishes in Baltimore, of course we started with an order. The dish is baked in a skillet so there are crispy edges, which I am a huge fan of. The dish is so cheesy and buttery, it’s the ultimate winter comfort meal.
With the intention of also getting something green and healthy-ish added to this meal, we opted to split a Caesar Salad. The dressing was creamy, the asiago crouton was cheesy, and it was a hit.
Lastly, we shared the Creekstone Farms Black Angus Cheeseburger. It may not look like anything special, but for sure it is one of my favorite burgers in the city. Yes, even better than Hamilton Tavern. The patty is cooked to a perfect medium rare and so juicy. Even better, they come with a side of Rosemary Garlic Fries which I can’t get enough of.
