Back in the day, when the Coliseum hosted sports teams and superstars, the Taverne was the go-to spot for pre- and post-show drinks and vittles. New owners have revived the historic restaurant with hopes of restoring the glory days. A fresh menu of contemporary chef-driven fare, much of it prepared with local bounty from area farms, is drawing new blood to this old haunt. Snack on deviled local eggs, beer-steamed mussels, and Korean sliders before moving on to oxtail ravioli, grilled scallops, or an egg-topped burger.
The successor to chef-owner John Kolar's Thyme, Thyme2 offers two distinct environments: fine dining upstairs and a pub below. On the first menu you'll find contemporary, upscale preparations of fish, seafood, and meats. On the second, there's wood-fired pizzas, burgers, and wings. No matter which you choose, count on Kolar to deliver the goods.
The Tock has been around for as long as anyone can recall, and the food is probably better than you remember. Plenty of Greek and American favorites, but the St. Louis-style ribs are the star attraction.
Toast is a neighborhood bistro and wine bar shoehorned into a 100-year-old storefront in Gordon Square. Updated daily to best take advantage of the freshest provisions delivered from area farms, the small menu is a moving target. A chalkboard ticks off the day's toasts, cheeses and house-made charcuterie. Larger plates include flank steak, pork chops, and a mind-blowing crepe stuffed with smoked perch, pickled strawberry and dilly crème fraiche. Of course, the menu will be different when you get there.
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.
It's not always easy to peg Willeyville, the new Flats East Bank restaurant from chef-owner Chris DiLisi, but half the fun is in the discovery. The chef's creativity and enthusiasm are apparent on the menu, which includes six separate sections and more than 30 options. Stand-outs include lightly breaded calamari, adobo-flavored shrimp tacos, and big, juicy and flavorful pork meatballs.
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.
The triangular downtown Winking Lizard has 70 televisions, which display continuous sports, including games from all major satellite packages.
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.
