THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chaucer's Tabard Inn Restaurant Review

: You might find a wife in this very busy bar, but it could be the Wife of Bath. It's so Olde English here that she would be right at home. Hanging out is fine---recite Jabberwocky from memory at the bar and you'll get a drink on the house---but if you get hungry, climb the stairs to a more serene room, hung with Native American fabrics, and backed by New Age music. The menu is large, composed of small plates derived from any culture you can name. Have a beer and try the coconut shrimp, a shrimp spring roll or sam tan, a crunchy salad of shredded cabbage, chilies and chopped peanuts. Move on to jerk chicken, a Vietnamese hoagie, or an all-American burger, especially with curly fries.
