Tarpy's Roadhouse Restaurant Review

: Don't let the name fool you: this landmark restaurant features a sophisticated, casual vibe. The bar boasts a cocktail menu inspired by freshly picked herbs and berries from the on-site garden. Whether you order small plates such as barbacoa beef brisket on white tortilla chips, or go for the "whole hog" --- a maple-brined Berkshire pork chop in a cherry Madeira reduction --- you'll find the elevated roadhouse fare savory and satisfying. Chocolate peanut butter mousse is a locals' favorite, and with good reason. Wine-Down Wednesdays pairs a prix-fixe menu with offerings from a different winery each week.
