Tarpy's Roadhouse Restaurant Review: Tarpy's is a landmark restaurant featuring a sophisticated, casual vibe and a bar boasting a creative cocktail menu inspired by goods freshly picked from the on-site garden. The pet-friendly patio is one of the nicest around. Chef Todd Fisher's menu ranges from light bites to comfort food. Start with a small plate, perhaps the whimsical "frickles" (hot, tangy, crunchy, fried pickles), spicy tuna deviled eggs or bacon-wrapped Brussels sprouts served on a mound of sweet tomato jam. Traditionalists can go straight for the classic meatloaf --- the elevated roadhouse fare here is satisfying. Chocolate peanut butter mousse is a locals' favorite, and with good reason; refreshing house sorbets make it just as difficult to put the spoon down.
