Despite the fact that Drifter’s Tale Tavern is only a couple of months old, customers say its wait staff is at the top of their game. They not only bring food and drinks out speedily, but also check back frequently to make sure you have everything you need. The service is the only thing that’s fast about Drifter’s Tale, though. The seasoned chef takes great care to slowly craft each bite using fresh ingredients, and patrons have already noticed the high quality of the cuisine.
Start with a signature cocktail or a pint of locally crafted beer and a few of the New American small plates. The list of shareable bites includes everything from oysters on the half-shell to falafel bites drizzled with zesty hummus tahini. Savor the starters and sip on your chosen libation as you wait for your larger entree to arrive. The seafood paella for two is a popular option among guests with its mix of mussels, shrimp, scallops, chorizo, and, of course, saffron arborio rice. But you can also dig into a house-made sausage loaded with sauerkraut and beer mustard or the steak frites with chimichurri sauce and truffle fries. Just make sure you save enough room for the popular churros at the end of your meal!
