Lunch at Rhombus Guys Brewing Company

Located in the historic Metropolitan Opera House, Rhombus Guys Brewing Company, along with its owners Matt and Arron, really know how to make some iconic ales. This 15-barrel brewhouse serves up its version of popular styles including ambers, IPAs, pales, sours and stouts. The kitchen also produces great eats like fresh Angus burgers, bangers and mash, Scotch eggs, and the tastiest fried Brussels sprouts this side of Belgium. Beer (in delicious dairy form) also plays a starring role in many of their dishes: homemade pretzels with beer cheese dip, pub fries smothered in pulled pork and beer cheese and a bacon mac 'n' beer cheese that'll really rock your taste buds! Rhombus now also offers a weekend brunch with lots of eggcellent offerings.
