For a savory meal and diverse drink options, head to Norman's Blackbird Gastropub. With a new take on traditional pub food and American comfort food, Blackbird blends rich flavors to make scrumptious delights for every taste. Blackbird Gastropub offers many options for your meal, including appetizers, amazing sides, flavorful stews, hearty salads, sandwiches and traditional pub foods.
Start off with loaded pub fries. Thick-cut fries covered with gorgonzola cream and shaved parmesan, then topped with scallions and applewood smoked bacon will satisfy your cravings, or try the mac 'n' cheese featuring cheddar, gorgonzola, nutmeg and cream with ciabatta crumb. Have some made-to-order guacamole, freshly made with serrano pepper pico and served with chips and house salsa.
Mixed drinks and a wide selection of whiskey are high points at Blackbird Gastropub. While you scan the menu, sip on aged scotch or an Irish whiskey. Order a classic cocktail like a mint julep, or try an ice pick. With so many food items on the menu, it won't be easy to decide what to have. Sample some of the traditional pub food, like the double crust pulled chicken pot pie or the beef and truffle oil shepherd's pie, made with all-natural organic beef. Amber ale-battered fish and chips is a favorite meal, and the hand-tossed pizza with chorizo, wild mushrooms and pepperoni is a meaty option.
Try Blackbird's hearty entrees, like the serrano and garlic meatloaf with spicy pepper glaze or the roasted half chicken, served with black truffle oil mashed new potatoes and honey-thyme glazed carrots. The porterhouse pork chop with fig and port reduction and the slow-cooked pot roast are also good choices. Complete your meal with a side dish such as bacon and apple brussel sprouts with gorgonzola cream, white bean and sun-dried tomato bruschetta or rosemary roasted potatoes with gorgonzola cream.
For something lighter, order the honey smoked salmon salad, topped with bleu cheese vinaigrette, dried cranberries, apples, walnuts and parmesan. The basque-style fisherman's stew is a great choice for seafood lovers, with fresh-catch fish, scallops and shrimp in a stew of leeks, red pepper and garlic. Blackbird offers a classic hamburger, but also offers a wild mushroom and fontina burger and cheddar and bacon burger. Try the shaved corn beef reuben on pumpernickel with sauerkraut, served with fries. For a pub and comfort food experience, Blackbird Gastropub is the way to go.
