THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Norcross Tavern Restaurant Review

: Once simply a neighborhood pub in the truest sense of the word---it didn’t even have a TV---this charming corner of historic downtown Norcross has acquired several TVs, a new owner, and someone who can cook. Neighbors gather for games of Trivial Pursuit and to throw darts, and one has to wonder how much the TVs really are a focus. The food’s pretty good now, with a lamb-centered shepherd’s pie and some pretty good bangers ’n’ mash, the latter made with fresh mashed potatoes. But then the new owner’s an Irishman, Huw Thomas, and he’s got a sound sense of how this local favorite ought to be operated. As a result, crowds of 30-somethings are flocking. There are lots of beers on draught and out of the bottle, although it needs a good nonalcoholic brew to round out the inventory.
