Lively and friendly, the Village Tavern has a bustling dining room filled with large booths, a vast veranda to dine in the soft Florida breezes and a large wood carved bar filled with people enjoying Pulled Pork Sliders, perfectly seared Ahi Tuna and fresh Wood Oven Pizzas, made with flour tortillas. With an Award Winning Wine list that boast over 60 wines by the glass, priced from as little as $2.75, offering more than 30 beers and specialty drinks made with roses and violets, the Village Tavern is an easy place to call your own.
Tonight, dinner at the Village Tavern started with a giant Jumbo Lump Crab Cake that had virtually no fillers, plump PEI Mussels in a little touch of white wine and pesto plus, the best Spinach Salad you’ll ever have, served with a super delicious apple walnut muffin. It was love at first bite.
Specializing in hand-cut aged steaks, the Steak Au Poivre was cooked to perfection with a superbly balanced sauce, the Braised Short Ribs were so tender the meat just fell off the bone, and straight into a pile of fluffy garlic mashed potatoes. The Lamb Chops w/balsamic mint glaze was a nice change and they all went beautifully with both the Benzinger, Sonoma Cabernet and the Ravenswood Zinfandel.
For the seafood lovers, Village Tavern’s Grouper Hemingway was the hit of the evening. Rich with white wine, lemon, capers and fresh tomatoes on a bed of angel hair pasta, try the Bonterra Chardonnay and you won’t be sorry. The yummy Grilled Rainbow Trout was marinated in sweet soy and the Pan-Seared Scallops w/ green beans, both worked very well with King Estate Pinot Gris that was served along with the appetizers.
For dessert, there is only one choice that is worthy of every single calorie and every gram of fat, and that is the orgasmic Banana Crepes! Large rolls of French crepes are spread inside w/ Nutella and filled with Banana Ice Cream before being drizzled all over with caramel & chocolate sauce. The combination of these lovely taste and textures are so delicate, it is enough to create a temporary state of nirvana.
I’m glad the Village Tavern is in my town. Are they in your’s?
