You can pave the road with yellow bricks, good intentions, or asphalt.
As long as it leads to the bar, we're on it.
Leave the GPS at home and follow us to Tavern Road, your new route to boozy bliss now open in Fort Point.
Chef Louis DiBiccari's own journey towards Tavern Road comes after stops at Storyville and Sel de la Terre, and he's worked up a thirst for creative cocktails and eclectic beers from around the world along the way.
Hence the menu is stocked with lively libations for the weary traveler, whether you're Down & Brown (Rye, Fernet, Benedictine, Maraschino) or looking for Heaven on Her Lips (Gin, lime juice, strawberry, basil leaves).
Then again, maybe you just need a cold beer, with 17 draft offerings ranging from the dependable (Notch Session Pilsner) to the decadent, as in the 22-oz. pour of Anchorage Galaxy.
And wherever your next move takes you, be sure to get there on a full stomach of stuffed veal breast and rohan duck breast served underneath a 30-foot wall mural inspired by the neighborhood's artistic traditions.
Artfully crafted cocktails included, of course.
