Every restaurant should have at least one dish that is relatively mainstream. Excellent mainstream is a good thing. The Tavern has nice atmosphere and lots of creativity, but sometimes, I just want a steak or chicken breast that is cooked to perfection, with a nice sauce. The menu used to offer a filet with a choice of sauces, and it was lovely! I have a hard time with the current menu at the Tavern, and that is disappointing because I live so close to it. Every item on the menu has something "cutting edge" that just isn't what I'm looking for. The bar is great, and the wine list is nice. The fish and chips are more crust than fish and I strongly recommend against them. If your taste is for uber-creative, you'll love this place. If you want an excellent meal of something mainstream, you will be disappointed.
