Morristown is one of the great destinations in northern New Jersey. The Mayo Performing Arts Center provides year-round entertainment, with music, dance, comedy, and theatrical presentations. The Morris Museum, a movie theatre multiplex, and houses of worship add to the town’s attractiveness. Morristown has a vibrant and diverse nightlife, terrific shopping, and many great places to eat and drink. So, Let’s talk Revolution.
Located off the Green at 9 South Street, Revolution is a new, large, and inviting space which attracts the young, hip, and friendly into its doors. Billed as a “Social Brew House,” Revolution features European-influenced cuisine, using locally-grown foods from tri-state area farms. Their menu is focused upon German cuisine, with wursts (listed as “the Core and Heartbeat of Revolution” on the menu), mussels, pancakes, and an entire section titled “Haus Entrees.”
For example, under “Wursts” there is a variety of sausage plates: two sausages of one variety, $13; a Triple Plate, with a choice of three different varieties for $18; and a Combo Plate, with four sausages from two different varieties for $20. These sausages are handmade, and come with traditional sides of German-style potato salad and sauerkraut, and special hand-crafted mustards from Barth’s Pork Store in New Providence, NJ. Among the choices were weisswurst, bauwern wurst, and smoked bratwurst.
“Haus Entrees” feature half a dozen mouthwatering items such as Rotisserie Pork Loin Schnitzel, roasted and breaded pork loin with pan gravy, green beans almondine, and red Bliss potatoes for $16. Revolution Wurst Pizza is a thin crust individual pizza with a mélange of grilled wursts, New York State Muenster, ricotta with garlic spinach, and fried sage all dressed with Alfredo sauce, $13.
There are many side dishes too. They include Brussels sprouts with house bacon and herbs ($6), sweet potato fries ($7), Regular fries ($4), Onion Rings ($6), and House Cured and Smoked Bacon ($6).
Revolution also serves Lunch Sandwiches (aka “Svendics”) such as the Black Forest Ham and Gruyere Cheese at $13 which is described as being made from house cured and smoked bacon, heirloom tomatoes, Bibb lettuce, and truffle mayonnaise on marbled rye bread. The burger section features The Revolution Burger ($13), a double-sized burger composed from short ribs, brisket, and chuck with house bacon, dressed with pickle relish, New York State cheddar, heirloom tomatoes and Bibb lettuce. Soups, salads, and starters are also featured, including desserts.
What would a great brew house be without beers? There is a great selection from which to choose. A list of current beers may be seen at the restaurant or viewed on Taphunter. If you do find it hard to choose, you may opt for any four five-ounce tasters from available draughts. Choices will range from $10 to $16. Some special items may be extra.
