Small Bites: B&O American Brasserie celebrates fifth anniversary with throwback menu

 
B&O American Brasserie opened its doors on July 30, 2009, and the restaurant at the Hotel Monaco is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a limited-time "throwback" menu of $5 cocktail "tastes" and $10 small plates.

The three cocktails -- the Horsecar, the Coal Train and the Camden Crusta -- were on head bartender Brendan Dorr's original B&O cocktail list, although they've been replaced by newer creations. The same goes for the "throwback" menu items -- cornmeal fried oysters, steak tartare, rice-crusted diver scallops and an heirloom tomato and watermelon salad. The anniversary menu is available at B&O now through the end of August.
