Happy hour is a staple of American work culture. There are entire sitcoms dedicated to people going to the bar after work when the drinks and appetizers are a special price. It typically begins at 4:00 PM in most restaurants and bars like ours and runs until dinner, which is 6:00 PM for Bank+Vine. We have a special menu of happy hour food and drinks that are perfect to have while you’re unwinding from work and chatting with your friends and co-workers.
The best happy hour food is all about being easy to eat, quick to eat, and affordable. Some of them are even shareable. That’s what we had in mind when we came up with the food for our happy hour menu.
Charcoal Grilled Carrots, Lemon Yogurt, Sicilian Pistachio
You’ve had a long day at work, so maybe it’s best to get something both energizing, full of potassium and vitamin A. Not everyone likes vegetables, but carrots have always been one many people make an exception for. After potatoes, they’re considered the second most popular vegetable.
To improve on something so popular, we grilled the carrots. We specifically charcoal-grilled them, cooking the carrots at a higher temperature and giving them a smoky taste, adding something extra. The lemon yogurt and Sicilian pistachio are two sweet-tasting sides that will add to the dish with their soft feeling, aromatic scent, and fruity flavor.
Burrata, Grilled Lancaster Corn, Lemon Oil
There are many different types of cheese in the world that most people have tried, but Burrata is one of the few kinds of cheese that people may not have heard of. It’s an Italian cow milk cheese, which means it has an outer casing of solid cheese with a soft cream in the middle. This is what has led to its soft texture.
This is perfect to eat by itself or with another item like a salad, bread, tomatoes or even pasta. It has a difficult taste to describe, which only makes this cheese stand out more. It’s sweet like a delicacy, yet milky like a rich cream. It’s closest to mozzarella, which is traditionally made from the milk of a water buffalo.
Charcoal Grilled Whole Chicken Wings, House Wing Sauce
Not everyone wants to try something new. Chicken wings are a classic appetizer to have anywhere. It makes for great happy hour food because it’s something familiar, something you can nibble on at your leisure, and you can easily share them with your friends and co-workers.
But because chicken wings are such a classic, and we don’t do anything like everyone else, we charcoal grill them. We add a similar smoky flavoring to the chicken that we do to the carrots. Match that with our house wing sauce and you have the perfect meal.
B+V Burger, 6oz Hereford Beef, Cheddar, Bacon
With the B+V burger, we offer our guests a classic meal. It’s perfect for anyone looking for something comfortable, something just for them, that they can eat and know they’ll enjoy. When we do a classic happy hour food like this, we go all out, using Hereford beef for the meat. It’s a premium brand that follows our belief and tradition of using farm products.
