AAA Inspector Notes
This small, intimate tavern pays homage to the historic nature of the town and its early leaders. Navy blue walls are accented with the American and Rhode Island flags that blend perfectly with the rustic industrial design. You can expect refined comfort food here paired with craft beers and cocktails. Small plates, charcuterie boards and tavern snacks such as eggplant dip and BBQ-spiced popcorn are great beginners to your meal. Main dishes change with the seasons but may include a fried chicken sandwich with pickles and cabbage or a butter poached monkfish with celery root-apple puree. Homemade gourmet ice creams including pumpkin chai and rum raisin with pecan brittle are sure to delight. Brunch is equally as good with homemade pastries including a warm cinnamon bun and buttermilk biscuits with pear jam. The also serve a perfectly crisp fried chicken with waffles that is topped with pickled peppers and chili maple syrup.
