TIME-TESTED & TIMELY
A community-centric locale defines this vintage restaurant and taproom. The stately building, situated in the heart of the city since 1869, attracts wide patronage—from professionals enjoying the crystal-chandeliered elegance of the dining room to students lifting a pint in the yesteryear tavern. There’s a place, and a plate, for everyone at Pearly’s.
Under the expansive umbrella of New American cuisine, Executive Chef Ricky Heinrichs elevates familiar tastes with tantalizing twists inspired by multi-ethnic cooking styles. House-made pickles and condiments like smokehouse aioli and grilled pineapple salsa accent luscious layers of flavor. For example, Pan Roasted Salmon, a long-standing favorite (and gluten-free) entrée, partners a spice-rubbed filet with herb goat cheese polenta. Garlic jam delivers tanginess, mushroom paté adds earthy notes, and potato crisps furnish a textural counterpoint to this well-rounded dish. On the casual side, the Fig & Brie Grilled Cheese sandwich upgrades comfort with a simmered mission fig ragu, tart red onion confit, and peppery arugula tucked inside fragrant rosemary ciabatta. Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options also abound, from burgers to cauliflower flatbreads. Specialty cocktails, seasonal sangria, and 26 staple and rotating taps (plus craft cans and bottles) will quench any thirst—especially when live music rocks the house 3 night a week. There’s never a cover and always a good time.
