So since our first visit over two years ago, things have changed vis-a-vis the popularity: no longer is it possible to spend a quiet Saturday afternoon there as we discovered on a cold February day. That was really off-putting, but we did manage to score a table at lunchtime on a Wednesday as our first stop on Dulcie and Aylwin's Big Beer Adventure vol V. Not a lot has changed in two years, except the food has improved - like where in a bar are you going to get haricot verts, prosciutto and a poached egg? And don't forget the mussels. No need to say anything about the beer part.
This place is one of the best in America. Totally weird it's in Munster.
Our first visit to FFF was DLD, which made for an insane experience, like trying to get into a night club in Piccadilly Circus with bouncers and girls sneaking in saying they had to use the lav. It was complete mayhem but quite amusing. So when we returned a couple of weeks later we didn't quite know what to expect.
It was actually remarkably quiet in the late Saturday afternoon and all the tattoos and piercings had been replaced by fairly normal looking people. We were shocked to see that some were not even drinking beer! How come? As I mentioned on my blog at the time, it's because the food is really good; I mean shockingly good for a place like that. Not fine dining by any means but quality and fit for the beer. So locals go for the food but don't necessarily booze.
Beer of course incomparable, with their own offerings superbly balanced by several guests. You can't go wrong.
Most of the time one can get a decent table, although the logistics are a little strange - it just about overcomes the fact it's stuck in this industrial park in the middle of nowhere.
