Chef Jeremiah Bacon's new happy hour fare—which he's calling Bacon Happy Hour—lets the famed chef have a little fun with his weekday menu.
Featuring tasty (and hearty) plates like cheeseburger sliders, poutine, and “totchos”—tater tot nachos—the food options are a nod to street food traditions across the nation as well as the world.
The stars are the pork cheesesteak with peppers, onions, and melted fontina cheese, as well as the chicken wings, which throw a curveball on the traditional bar bites by featuring fish sauce, which is more often seen in Asian cuisine than on ballgame platters.
Each day a new cocktail will be featured, offering fresh twists on classics with house-made ingredients. One such drink is the “Avery's Demise”: Tabasco chile-infused Cazadores Reposado, Citromelo, Orange, and Cilantro—typically an $11 libation priced at $6.
The new happy hour menu will be available at The Macintosh every Monday through Friday from 5 pm to 7 pm, and somehow manages to keep every item offered priced at $6 or below. The lineup will change twice monthly to keep things fresh, mixing in totally new and creative dishes with familiar favorites.
“I wanted a chance to show off our ‘Best Of’ dishes more often than one week a year,” said Bacon.
