We had Restaurant Week reservations at a downtown restaurant that we had made before the New England/Denver playoff game was scheduled. As Murphy would have it, they were smack dab in the middle of the game. So we decided to watch the beginning and end of the game at a bar downtown. We were heading for a likely place when we passed Leaf and saw that they had two big screens with the SF/NO game on them. The bar looked inviting and well set up to watch the game, without being a rowdy sports bar.
We went in, made sure they would be showing our game, and sat down. The place was perfect for watching the game. They had an excellent menu that the patrons we talked to had great things to say about, and the beer selection on tap was outstanding - Dogfish, Stone, Widmer and more on 6 taps.
We ended up returning after the game and enjoying the blowout with a little more beer. We will be back for dinner, and more sports watching.
