Yes, you know about the burger. So does everyone else. But at the heart of Sang Yoon’s dual-location beer bar is also the city’s finest gastropub (applicable well before that term was overused into oblivion), a place where the idea of pairing smoked eel salad with an imperial porter, or roast bone marrow with a Belgian sour, shifted from oddball to essential. Father’s Office doesn’t rest on its laurels, however. The roster of craft beers remains pleasantly diverse enough to challenge beer nerds, and the kitchen’s nightly specials are continually worth the visit. If nothing else, there’s always the burger and fries. Sans ketchup, naturally. —Garrett Snyder
