In typical Gerard Craft fashion, nothing is on the menu at Taste for long. However, the small plates are carefully crafted to reflect the equally deliberate cocktail menu. Something you can definitely get is the "Barbacoa," three tiny masa cakes topped with braised beef cheek, pickled red onion, cilantro, queso fresco and salsa verde. We're also lusting over the sweet corn bruschetta with tomato, queso fresco, corn creamed ricotta, mushrooms, cilantro and lime. Maybe you can get bar manager Kyle Mathis to whip you up a drink he hasn't even named yet to go along with your grub.
