The beat goes on at this corner tavern, thanks to hyperseasonal, creative, and filling fare. Earthy pastas and protein-packed salads give way to a maple-braised pork shank or a Slagel Family Farm burger. Vegetarian options are fewer but well wrought. Desserts include stunners such as olive oil doughnuts nestled in almond cream and hazelnut praline. For the less gluttonous, brunch shines every bit as much as dinner.
