Nicely fried cod in an IPA beer batter ($14) has a lighter crust than some and the caper aioli makes a zingy topping. The Kennebec potato’s flavor comes through in the fries, which can also be ordered as a side with Japanese togarashi seasoning or rosemary gremolata.
Pizzas are whimsically named: Salad Daze has avocado and lettuce, while Pig Newton ($14) has Serrano ham, fig tapenade and goat cheese. The crust has a good yeasty flavor, so keep the toppings simple for optimum flavor. The attention to local ingredients is appreciated, though the food is fairly basic. ...Mohawk Bend is a temple to beer and a versatile spot for festive eaters and drinkers.
