Three Things to Know About Tap 79

None 4 Photos Tap 79
Today you commemorate Mexico’s victory over the French at the Battle of Puebla in 1862...

Or today you’ve completely forgotten it’s Cinco de Mayo and you’re simply looking for a post-work patio drink with your dog...

There are exactly three things to know about Tap 79, your new MiMo spot for short rib and beer, and those things are:

1. The food’s damn good.
You’ve got to try the short rib with creamy corn polenta. It’s become that thing. You know, that one thing on a menu you can’t say you haven’t tried. The chef is behind Bin No. 18, so you might want to start with one of his recognizable brie-and-pâté tabla platters.

2. Your dog can hang out with you on either of the two patios.
One patio is covered, one is not. So grab a seat on the covered patio if you both forgot to SPF, and then get to know the sprightly French bulldog and his attractive human—perhaps over a cold Founders IPA (they’ve got 30 beers here) and maybe some house-cured beef jerky.

3. Fried cheesecake temporarily exists. Now.
There’s no dessert menu here—they just wing it daily. Today happens to be fried-cheesecake day.

That other hallowed holiday.
