THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Taste Gastropub Restaurant Review

: Dark and slightly sexy, Taste’s interior shines with its big-city attitude, a find in a small, semirural community. At lunchtime, the brief menu includes such sandwiches as a grilled cheese with hearty cheddar and a grilled rib-eye with all the trimmings plus your choice of soup or salad. In the evening, the kitchen ramps things up with the likes of seafood pasta and pan-seared scallops. Regardless of whether you’re dining at lunch or dinner, start with the artichoke flatbread, a flavorful combination of chopped artichoke hearts covered with a sprinkling of melted cheese. Other options include calamari, garlic shrimp and a crab dip. Desserts include sticky toffee bread pudding and Mama Kathy’s lemon pie. Of course, a key component to dining here is the robust wine selection: the wall-based wine racks attest to the restaurant’s dedication to providing the perfect match; beers are available, too.
