My husband and I went to City Tavern for our wedding anniversary. I had seen Chef Staib on A Taste of History on PBS and was enthralled by him cooking on an open hearth as they did in Colonial times. The menus were interesting, so I bought the City Tavern cookbook and was very impressed with the recipes.
We very much enjoyed our evening. The decor and ambience seem very authentic (but how would I know for sure), the service was very good, and the food was delicious. The menu isn't typical of this area but had lots of choices.
My husband had one of his favorites, lamb chops, and he very much enjoyed them. I had a special, linguini with shrimp, clams, and mussels. It had lots of seafood, and I couldn't finish the pasta. The créme brûlée was also delicious. They also have specialty drinks from Colonial times: beers, ales, and others. I enjoyed a raspberry shrub with champagne.
We enjoyed our evening a lot and are happy we chose City a tavern for our special day.
