City Paper is not for tourists
Snagging a seat at the The Arsenal at Bluejacket has been no easy feat with throngs of beer lovers crowding the bar in its first two weeks. Last weekend, it was so busy that the restaurant had to start a line at the front door. At least now there’s lunch. The dining room is now open from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on weekdays, with a limited menu at the bar between lunch and dinner hours. On weekdays, the restaurant opens at noon.
The lunch menu includes soup, salads, sandwiches, and burgers from $11 to $16. Among the items unique to the lunch menu: a porchetta sandwich with broccoli rabe, aged provolone, and pepper relish; an eggplant parmesan panino; and curried chicken soup. There are also starters like tater tots, pickled sausages, and smothered fries. Drinking is, of course, encouraged. Take a look at the full menu below.
