Attended a recent November Theater (Theater IV) event of the Dream Girls and enjoyed an early dinner at Tarrants. Always a great selection of food items, apps., entrees, and more. Great service, and good energy.

The restaurant is much larger than appears from outside, yet still maintains a cozy atmosphere! The menu is imaginative I had the pear and goat cheese salad topped with ahi tuna plus a delicious amaretto creme brûlée for dessert. YUM 💖
