The former Baricelli Inn has been spruced up by new owner and hospitality pro Scott Kuhn, with a streamlined decor, a handsome bar and lounge, and a delightful menu of seasonal American dishes crafted with an eye toward local sourcing. Sunday brunch is a popular draw, as is the Wednesday-night prix fixe menu. In summer, the secluded patio is a delight.
With roots dating back to 1840, this quaint rural tavern has a long history. Since being acquired by Gamekeeper’s Hospitality, the Inn has taken on a fresh appearance. Hearty home-style comfort foods like chicken pot pie, meatloaf and roast turkey dinner mingle with more modern pastas, seafood and steaks. Full bar.
A venerable Lakewood tavern, complete with tin ceiling, wooden floors, and a well-worn bar, this neighborhood watering hole serves up booze, music, and more than a few made-from-scratch items including burgers, pot roast, and the popular black-bean soup during lunch, dinner, and weekend brunches.
Another changing of the guard has placed this convenient café inside the West Side Market in good hands. Tom Szoradi, veteran chef and owner of the long-running Juniper Grille, has elevated the quality, consistency, and creativity of this breakfast-and-lunch mainstay. Breakfasts are upscale versions of diner classics; sandwiches consist of house-roasted meats atop artisan-baked breads; and fun starters like sausage-studded Hanky Pankies (cheesy fondue) and tempura-fried shitakes kick-start the meal.
An offshoot of the popular Lakewood Village Tavern, it was important to the owners that the kitchen offer the same sort of homey, affordable fare. Daily specials like mac and cheese and meatloaf are sold at ridiculously low prices. Saturday is steak night. Rounding out the menu are half-pound burgers, deli sandwiches and wraps, and a 21-piece shrimp dinner.
Established in 1953 as a rural roadhouse, Whitey's present-day specialties are booze, burgers, and superlative chili. The cozy atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, although on weekends, long waits for a table are to be expected.
The triangular downtown Winking Lizard has 70 televisions, which display continuous sports, including games from all major satellite packages.
One of many area outposts for this locally based tavern chain, the Independence Winking Lizard offers the typical combo of sports-themed decor, casual noshes including the better-than-average wings, burgers, wraps and big salads and a killer collection of suds. Full bar.
Noisy, friendly, and relaxed, the Lizard is one of Gateway's sure bets for juicy burgers, imaginative sandwiches, and overflowing salad bowls. The huge international beer list doesn't hurt either.
