Short and Sweet: The Melrose Keeps Its Menu Simple

This week's dining review features the short and sweet menu at The Melrose, the low-brow pub project of Bar Twenty3 founder Austin Ray. Located on Franklin Pike across from the bygone Melrose Lanes bowling alley, The Melrose offers an everybody-knows-your-name ambiance--complete with pool tables, Super Shot basketball game and Ms. Pac-Man table.

Kudos to Ray for keeping it simple as far as the food goes. The chalkboard above the bar lists a succint roster, including chili, nachos, quesadillas and wings, which means you can save your decision-making energy for the array of 75 beers.

Here's the question: If you could build your own short menu of bar fare--desert island dive dishes, if you will--what would be your top choices for pub grub?
