A First Bite at Theory
The Stew's Monica Eng has mixed feelings on the theme at new sports lounge, Theory, but she likes the food:
"Our super friendly and efficient waitress recommended the burger and especially the barbecue, noting they smoke everything in house. So we started with three pieces of Brian's Bespoke Babybacks ($7), which were impressively, sweet, sticky, smoky and tender specimens arranged in an artful pyramid and served with a vinegary Carolina-style sauce and a tangy house sauce.
"Our $3 cup of chili (which like most dishes sports a 'clever' name: A Chili Notion) features seasonal hot peppers, sweet onions, andouille sausage, sweet potatoes and cold-smoked cheddar, among other things. Interesting blend of ingredients but it left us wishing for less sweetness and a little more kick."
