Located at 1020 Broad Street, Barnum Publick House is a rare gem in downtown Bridgeport with loads of natural light from the tall windows which wrap around its corner location and add to an already attractive atmosphere. Once dug in, I encountered knowledgeable bartenders (I liked the Park City Sidecar), and a compelling menu - as in: you try the food and you're compelled to return. I particularly liked the Stonginton scallops, head-on coconut shrimp, and adult grilled cheese served with tomato soup, but the Niman Ranch pastrami sandwich was the star at my table.

I've only been to the Barnum Publick House once. Once was enough. I was hoping for a much better experience , wanting to support what looked like a potential bright spot in Bridgeport. I even had a friend that had participated in a press dinner there recommend it. Unfortunately it didn't work out well. My wife ordered the Adult Grilled Cheese and it barely had any cheese on it. We sent it back. I don't even remember what I had to eat. The best thing we ordered was the brownie sundae for my daughter.

I was very excited to order a Ballast Point Big Eye IPA, as Ballast Point was fairly new to CT. The place is called a Publick House, so I expected my $8 beer to be a freshly poured pint. Nope. A bottle came out. I then walked back to the bar to ask about it, because we couldn't fully see the bar from where we were sitting. Turns out that not only was the beer not on tap, but there were NO taps. How does a Publick house have no taps?

I wonder will all of the beer served at the dinner be from a bottle (Brooklyn) or can (Sixpoint)?
