The bites from chef Wes Lieberher are such a draw that Beer Belly skirts the line between drinking establishment and restaurant. Beer lovers-turned-entrepreneurs Jimmy and Yume Han focus on quality, not quantity, with their frequently rotating selection of rare and specialty kegs. The “bar” has just a few stools, but the tables are open to drinkers as well—if you can land a seat. Good tip: Log into the bar’s wireless system and control the music from your smart phone. » 532 S.
