I really like Royal Tavern. They have a beautiful bar, dim lighting, and are very veggie/vegan friendly. Unfortunately, I don’t live close, so I don’t get there very often. But when I can convince someone to make the trip, I go.
I’ve been thinking about this amazing “BLT” since a friend ordered it the last time I was there. Double-decker, marinated tempeh, tempeh “bacon,” lettuce, tomato and pesto mayonnaise on multi-grain bread. Slamming. Some dill pickle spears and hand-cut fries. A $5 large bloody mary, made spicy to order.
