Had dinner with a coworker on what was apparently Tiki Tuesday. Island themed cocktails, apps and Hawaiian shirts abound.
The blacked shrimp tacos were excellent. The shrimp was cocked just right and not the least bit chewy, which is easy to miss. I had Caribbean Jerk wings too which were big and meaty but maybe could have been a bit spicier for me. Both were based on small plate portions so my companion elected to order a second round of tacos to complete his meal.
We had Rum Old Fashions which were pretty good and seemed fitting for the theme. Neither my travel associate nor I wanted anything too sweet and these hit the mark pretty well. If we didn’t have work to do and had to drive we both would have had a second. Given the theme and happy hour specials we walked out without breaking the bank.
The Tavern will be on my return list next time I’m in town for work again.
