Long before there were oasts and flagships on Morrison Drive, there was the Tattooed Moose. A neighborhood dive bar festooned with stuffed critters, including its namesake, the Moose hit paydirt a few years ago as one of the first places in town to be featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. To their credit, aside from the crowds (deservedly) getting a little bigger, the fame hasn’t gone to their antlers. The Moose is known for its cold beer, killer sandwiches, and its duck fat fries. Oh, the fries. Served three ways, you can get your fries straight-up, with roasted garlic and blue cheese or with a side of gravy. For your main dish, try their famous duck confit club sandwich, a Thanksgiving sandwich, or the Lucky No. 1, with pork belly with kimchi, tomatoes, cucumbers, fried onions, spicy wasabi mayo, and sweet red chili sauce. It’s hard to go wrong with Sunday brunch at the Moose, with local favorites like their sweet take on a monte cristo or peanut butter and banana french toast. Stop by for happy hour and you’ll find 50-cent wings, $2 PBR pint cans, and $2 fries. —Sam Spence Dish (Winter 2015)
