Best Brewpub

E&O is a big, noisy, fun-filled Disney version of some Southeast Asian trading post, and in addition to a tasty selection of Indonesian, Malaysian, and Vietnamese tidbits there are half a dozen house-brewed beers suitable for quaffing. They include the ebony-black, velvety-smooth King's Stout; Eastern Golden, a dry, mild ale flavored with orange blossom honey; the spicy, caramel-scented Dragon's Breath; and a refreshingly bitter IPA crafted from East Kent Golding full-flower hops. The Cecil Wells-Jimmy Williams Jazz Duo performs every Friday and Saturday night, there's a mezzanine for private functions, and among the suds-friendly small plates are excellent corn fritters, lamb-stuffed naan bread with mint-cucumber raita, and greenlip mussels with curry and basil.
