Test Pilot Tuesdays!!!

Journeyman restaurant is an awesome dinner experience. They offer a many course tasting menu Wednesday through Sunday. It’s delicious and you should try it. But if you’re scared to invest in a full dinner than you should come to backbar on Tuesday nights. In addition to our small bites and appetizers and our amazing RAMEN we will be offering a course from the Journeyman kitchen that they’re testing out. So come on in and try a single course of amazing Journeyman food and try our Drink of the Day that will be a delicious pairing with it. Price varies depending on the size of the dish.

Starts tonight so come on in!!!
