This Small Town Connecticut Pub Has Some Of The Best Food In New England
The Nutmeg State is overloaded with restaurants, it seems sometimes there is one on each and every corner. So it’s easy to overlook the really great places that are tucked away into our small towns. Make a special trip to this Connecticut pub and you won’t be disappointed. Found in the quaint community of
Chester, the River Tavern is home to scrumptious dishes that will surprise you with every bite.
Located right on Main Street amid the quaint shops and galleries, River Tavern is a favorite watering hole and restaurant just west of the Connecticut River.
One usually associates the word tavern with heavy comfort food served in a dark wood-paneled space. Visit this Connecticut pub and you'll find just the opposite.
The dining room is bright and light with a very modern feel. In warm weather, several patio tables are available for outdoor dining.
From appetizers to full plates, you can expect farm fresh ingredients prepared in a thoughtful way. The menu changes with the seasons depending on the current harvest. Specialty cocktails are created to compliment the everchanging dishes at the tavern.
You'll find traditional pub food on the menu, like juicy burgers with all the right fixings...
...while other choices have a bit more finesse. Dive into the spaghetti with shrimp, calamari, mussels, garlic, tomato, and chilies. This is no plain Jane pasta and sauce dish.
Enjoy the fried chicken which has a mouthwatering twist. Served with Nashville heat and house-made pickles on top, it isn't your ordinary comfort food.
For a lighter bite, try the yummy tacos. Savor pulled pork, tofu, or shrimp with deliciously fresh toppings.
Save room for dessert and hope that either the chocolate souffle or date pudding is the offering when you visit. The River Tavern is a small town spot that has some of the best food around.
