F A B F A R E Rooftop Repose Brazwells Serves Up Sunset Views, Eclectic Menu By Amy Rogers | Photos by Ray Sepesy W hen you time it just right and settle into a seat on the rooftop patio at Brazwells Premium Pub, you can catch one of the season's prettiest sights: the sun setting each evening between the city's buildings. Brazwells is a unique place. It's the only sports bar in Ballantyne with its own urban-style rooftop, in addition to a lively dining room and relax- ing patio. It captures many different moods — mellow and serene as friends gather at the end of a workday, but also energetic and fun when fans meet to cheer on their favorite teams. It's a popular spot for business meetings and networking over happy-hour libations, and it draws families with kids who play lively games of Jenga while their parents sip sangria. Versatile Kitchen The menu is eclectic. The Holy Cow Burger nearly defies gravity as it towers over hand-cut fries on the plate. It consists of two eight-ounce patties, stacked with provolone and cheddar cheeses, tomato, bacon, peppers, on- ion rings and condiments that include house-made bacon jam. A helpful knife inserted vertically holds the burger together on its trip from the kitchen to the table. Among other beef selections, rib-eye steak makes for an extra-tender steak teriyaki with jasmine rice. Sesame tuna is seared and glazed to perfection, then sliced and artfully arranged with bright green broccolini. Seasonal salads are abundant, and the kitchen is happy to accommodate What'll You Have? Check out these popular choices at Brazwells.
