In yesterday’s post, I was at G. Mig’s 5th Street Pub, 128 5th St, West Des Moines (Valley Junction.) Lindsey Crank identified it correctly as she is familiar with most DSM bars.
Bartender Jason is fabulous! He concocted the perfect sidecar (notice the extra glass for over pour) and a fab French Gin Gimlet. I haven’t had a gimlet since The Yacht Club was King Tut’s. And they weren’t French.
Also fabulous, the burgers. On Mondays they have a build-your-own burger for $7.95 with three toppings. There are a lot to choose from, such as the Iowa perennial favorite, bacon. Some toppings, and more than three toppings, are at an additional nominal cost. Two thumbs up! Next I’m trying the crab cakes. I heard they make you happy as a clam. If you go there, tell Jason “Diane sent me.”
