Editorial Review of Fedora Lounge

Fedora Lounge could probably get by on being an attractive-looking set of chandeliers and a long black bar with room for everyone. And for those just looking for a drink with some nice scenery, Fedora can do that job well. But underneath its pretty face, Fedora has a surprisingly select menu with curves and twists that might keep you coming back for more than the mood.

Fedora’s appetizers trend towards the exotic – wing flavors include original, spicy, lava and berry BBQ. French fries come with seasoning … and an egg. Chicken fries come with habanero mayo and horseradish cream. And the standout Moji is an Adriatic dish composed of a trio of meat links made from a mix of veal, lamb and pork, served with raw onion pieces and havar sauce on the side.

Burgers (available in angus beef or turkey) and sandwiches dominate the menu. A Madame with black forest ham, fried egg, bechamel and Gruyere can be had for $8. Or try the utilitarian Hangover burger (with pepper jack, applewood bacon, roasted jalapeño, a sunnyside egg and chipotle mayo) for $11. The jambalaya risotto comes with andouille sausage, chicken, tiger shrimp and a jalapeno pancake for $15.

In terms of beer, the bar carries a who’s-who list of microbrews, including Rare Vos, Abita Turbo Dog, Stone Leviathan, Delirium Tremens and many more ($6-11). A selection of reds, whites and sparkling wines are available by the glass or bottle. And to end the evening on a fine note, order the bourbon milkshake, which comes with a warm chocolate chip cookie from the kitchen.

The small corner stage is also not just for show – come in on Monday nights for an open mic night, or stick around after the games on weekends for burlesque performances.

Average cost: $10-$20
