The Chippo Hotel
The Chippo boasts A+ live music vibes and a New Orleans-inspired menu.
At a glance The Chippo's menu seems like classic pub grub — think wedges, steak and the requisite chicken parma. But look a little closer, and Louisiana-born chef Charlie Fisher's influence becomes clear. Entrees include popcorn chicken (or shrimp) tossed in Cajun spices, along with buffalo wings, southern fried chicken and American-style mac and cheese. As for the main course, if you're not feeling sirloin, why not make a mess with pork ribs served in Dr Pepper BBQ sauce.
They're also serving up a selection of burgers, inspired by their previous Cheekyburger pop-up. And for dessert, there are few things more American than homemade pecan pie.
On the entertainment front, The Chippo will feature pub trivia on Mondays, comedy on Tuesdays, improv and $1 wings on Wednesday and live music Thursday through Saturdays. On Sundays they'll be cooking up pig on the spit — because at least that way you'll start your week with a belly full of bacon.
