Bogart'z, a neighborhood bar on Mack Avenue recently changed hands from father to son and is now experiencing some updates to its menu and atmosphere. Metro Times reviewer Aaron Egan reports that the new owner, Jason, has been making small tweaks to the building including replacing the old sign and removing lattice work from the bar area. He's also edited and revamped the menu, Egan explains.
It's bar food of the "American cuisine" style, not overthought nor overwrought. Pizzas, burgers, entrées, and pastas; it's a little Italian mixed with a little Southwest, garnished with a few down-and-dirty bar snacks.
A few items stand out for the critic including Bogart'z "heavenly" garlic knots tossed in garlic and parmesan with a side of pesto aioli. Egan also favors the "juicy, sloppy, and delightful" Karloff buffalo burger. Despite the changes, the critic concludes that Bogart'z retains its former character and remains a great spot for lunch, after-work beers, and bar trivia.
