You could trigger a migraine deciding what to order at this grub pub, whose menu reads like an encyclopedia in both scope and length. The name of the game is beer—nearly 300 varieties, all from independent breweries—but the Fountainhead’s oft-overlooked whiskey list is equally impressive (see the 350-item Scotch section, topping out at a $103 Glenlivet pour). Bonus: The remarkably chill rooftop patio.
