Our bourbon chicken sandwich ($12) bears a fruity bourbon-apple aioli that plays nicely with two pieces of moist, pounded-flat chicken on a brioche bun that’s oddly missing a few patches of crust. Fries, fast-food shoestrings, underwhelm. The brisket sandwich ($13) isn’t bad either, though the hickory-smoked pulled beef isn’t terribly smoky under barbecue sauce that ostensibly has cherry in it. The slaw atop adds some creamy crunch, too. But for over 10 bucks, the value doesn’t feel like it’s there. If we’re going back to 719 Gastropub, it’s for a smattering of small-pour beers, sans dinner.
