Tap 79 provides a much-needed local haunt on the 79th Street Causeway. The gastropub, located just west of the first bridge to North Bay Village and the beach, concentrates on casual dining. A large focus is on burgers, made from a blend of Angus short rib, brisket, and chuck. The Tap 79 burger, served on toasted brioche, is a huge undertaking. Topped with aged Scottish cheddar and hickory-smoked bacon, it's a good value for $12. Burgers and all sandwiches come with a choice of sides, but get the truffle fries. Perfectly well done for crunch and boasting the right amount of truffle, they're served with a side of spiced ketchup. Some interesting small plates ("pub grub") and bar-grub munchies are featured, such as house-cured beef jerky ($6), rosemary-spiked nuts ($4), and spicy rock shrimp ($12). The beer selection is small enough not to bombard you with choices but large enough to provide something for everyone. Offerings on tap rotate, with Bells' Two Hearted Ale, Brooklyn Brown Ale, and New Belgium Fat Tire among the choices you might find. Bottled beers are more exotic, with a La Chouffe and a Krombacher Weizen available. All beers (and wine), by the way, are half off during daily "tap hour" from 4 to 7 p.m.
