Dr. Field Goods walks a fine line between hard rock dive, down-home diner and neighborhood pub offering creative, locally-sourced, seasonal dishes. Indeed, when Diners, Drive-ins and Dives made a recent pass through the city, the crew stopped at Dr. Field Goods, reportedly for a taste of its Bad Ass BLT ($14.50 + $1.50 egg), a burly 9-ounce house cured and smoked, then wood-fired, patty of bacon topped with special sauce, heirloom tomatoes, and lettuce. Whatever your interpretation, chef Josh Gerwin's is solid cooking with casual, inventive dishes aimed to fill. The kimchi patatas bravas ($10.50), hunks of fried potato slathered in a miso aioli and house-made kimchi are warm, spicy and filling, as are the vegetable egg rolls ($6.50), baby's arm-sized and filled with crunchy veggies and a delectable dipping sauce of miso and peanut. The signature New Mexican sandwich ($14) bursts from a pillowy, house-made bun, with a more-than-ample filling of green-chile-rubbed smoked pulled pork (from the Dr. Field Goods butcher shop a few doors down). A tart apple and jicama slaw topping provides texture and acid. Pizzas and enchiladas come flaming hot from the wood-fired oven anchoring the kitchen, and for those looking to walk a healthier line, the kale salad ($13.50) is served nicely warmed with generous helpings of fingerling potatoes, roasted beets, grilled Brussels sprouts, and rich miso vinaigrette.
