St. Arnold's Underground

We went on opening night to St. Arnold's underground, around the corner from (and underneath) the mussel bar. Loved the atmosphere. It had a bit of a British pub feel to it, which I'm sure will be improved once the smell of varnish leaves. We were a bit disappointed that some of their entrees like the deep fried burger or the bangers and mash were unavailable. The mussels from upstairs are available, and my wife loved their paella mussels. It's really a huge selection, with fifteen or twenty different choices.

I tried two of their (bacon-wrapped and deep-fried) hot dogs, the chicago and the vietnamese. Both were good with lots of fresh toppings. The sausage itself wasn't the best I've had -- it could have used a bit more snap, and wasn't large enough to avoid being overwhelmed by the toppings. The bun was average, but like the hot dog, did not really hold up to the toppings, and would probably have been better toasted.

Overall, it was a great experience for an opening night. Hopefully next time we'll be able to get some darts in!
