For Fulvio Sardelli Jr., opening the Tipsy Boar is like coming full circle in his cooking career. Sardelli started in kitchens as a child at his family's restaurant, Franco's Pizzeria in Davie, which moved and became Fulvio's 1900 – a still-standing institution in downtown Hollywood. While the food at his parents' joints (they opened a second restaurant, the upscale, beachfront Sardelli's, in 2012) has gotten fancier over the years, Fulvio Jr. wanted to open a gastropub-style restaurant where he could drink beer, watch sports, and find the deep-fried food he likes to eat after a long shift. He enlisted the help of Michael Blum – a once-hot Hollywood chef who ran Michael's Kitchen before fleeing to Palm Beach Gardens, then going off the radar for a few years – to create a menu that goes well beyond French fries and chicken wings. A Reuben spring roll comes with corned beef twisted inside a wrapper and fried until crispy. Lobster corn dogs are filled with generous chunks of sweet lobster meat. The dishes may change, but the beer list should stay steady with 40-odd choices. A not-too-hipster scene draws a diverse crowd.

This place is the absolute dregs of an already pathetic Holywood food scene. My wife and I live right around the corner from this place and being from England and fan of gastropubs thought we would give it a try. What a disappointment. It started before one word was even spoken to us. The waiter, unshaven and reeking of bathroom Polo to mask cigarette smoke literally threw the menus onto our table and walked away. As we perused the menu we agreed that not only was this not a gastropub but it was nothing more than glorified bar food. We got up an made our escape before our waiter ever returned.
