This fall many of us will be using food and beverage for an escape to our favorite places since travel likely isn’t in the cards. It makes it a little easier with fun spots like Hopleaf Bar & Restaurant in the neighborhood. This Belgian-style ale house has been a local staple for years but is gaining even more popularity as people start to long for the chance to travel.

One thing this eatery is known for besides an extensive beer list is mussels. Here, they're prepared Belgian-style, simmered in Blanche de Chambly beer with spices and herbs that really pack a punch of flavor in every bite. If seafood isn’t your thing, the housemade kielbasa sandwich is also delicious. The hard decisions come in when browsing the beer menu, which has over 30 drafts and even more bottles. Ask the server what they recommend for your taste preferences if you can’t make up your mind; they always provide great suggestions!

Right now, Hopleaf Bar & Restaurant is open for limited indoor and patio dining. If you’re in a hurry, just grab takeout!
