A fun, lively sports bar with pub food that’s a cut above the norm, the North End Tavern at 1301 North Avenue in the Wykagyl area is a great addition to New Rochelle’s dining scene.
Lots of people seem to agree, because on a recent Wednesday evening — not usually a big night for eating out — the Tavern was full of happy diners.
Catie was away in Philadelphia, so I took the boys out for a treat, and we collectively consumed a shamefully large amount of food, starting with a heaping plate of nachos and a soft chewy pretzel. Jeremy and I then moved on to burgers (perfectly medium-rare with a good meat-to-bun ratio), while Owen went for his standard go-to order: a generous bowl of mac & cheese. All delicious, if not exactly dietetic.
The staff was especially helpful in recommending — and providing tastings of — different beers. I settled on a Flower Power IPA. Nothing quite as interesting for the boys, although they seemed to enjoy their lemonade.
