Laurel Tavern Restaurant Review

: Almost any night of the week, you'll find locals packing the tables and aisles of this neighborhood gem, both after work and long into the noisy evening. The décor includes flooring reclaimed from a 1920’s industrial warehouse, luminous Edison bulbs, a walnut butcher-block bar and exposed brick. Ordering off chalkboards at the bar, choose from a list of creative cocktails and a dynamic selection of 16 American microbrews on tap. Twenty or so wines by the glass are reasonably priced and food friendly. Diners can start with a grilled artichoke, roasted heirloom carrots in wildflower honey, or a large hot pretzel. There are plenty of sandwiches and burgers as well, such as the L.T. grilled cheese made with Asiago, Gruyère and a red wine-poached pear on sourdough, or the bacon blue cheese burger with caramelized onions. Steak fries are cooked in duck fat and served with hickory dipping sauce.
