Latest Dry/Bean news and reviews at del.icio.us

JM ate the fish sandwich and fries with a lemonade.
Nichole ate the turkey reuben with clam chowder and a Coke.
We split an order of buffalo wings.
The bill was $22, or $11/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave the Bean a B- (see our grading rubric).

The service was good and the wings above average. The rest of the food was just meh, slightly below average bar grub. But the Bean's location on a major outbound commute route and its full music and events calendar hint at its niche.
