Good Word Brewing and Public house is the delicious result of the thoughtfully entwined visions of owner-brewer Todd DiMatteo and executive chef Brian Crain.
While DiMatteo crafts the beer, he also keeps a watchful eye on the kitchen, where the spirit of his Puerto Rican grandmother resides like a guardian angel. Start with a glass of You Do You, I’ll Do Me — an easy-drinking table beer — and a dish of corn fritters. Served over swirls of Duke’s mayo and topped with cotija and cilantro, the hush pups are a delicious commingling of DiMatteo’s American South-meets-Latin American philosophy.
Any second plate — say, roast chicken, braised beef with winter veggies or a classic cheeseburger — will provide a fine excuse for moving on to the heady The Universe Says, a juicy green IPA with a noticeable kick. Should you choose to end on a sweet note, Tres Leches Butter Cake is a winner: Inside a little cazuela are two sweet slices of light-as-a-feather cake; a scoop of velvety, condensed-milk-based ice cream; cinnamon-and-brown-sugar churro crumbles; and a puddle of burnt-cinnamon creme anglaise. Gimme that spoon! No doubt DiMatteo’s grandmother, Maria Esther Pena, would approve.
