Haverhill eats

Joanie | Jun 4, 200809:00 AM

Stopped by our usual place The Tap so my friend could have his favorite Leatherneck (I think that's the name) beer. We also split some portobello fries and those were excellent. Good frying, fair amount of mushroom "fingers", good dipping sauce, $8.95. Went to the show at Welfare Records (which sadly was their last due to neighbor/police problems) then over to the bar at Keon's for some appetizers. And a "martini" (please note quotation marks). This place bought the bar from the old Rat so had to be visited once. Too bad their prices are on the high side, for anyone, not just Haverhill. Can't remember what fruit combo drink I got but it was fine, beer choices weren't overly exciting. We split a bibb salad w/ goat cheese, nuts and champagne vinaigrette, a little overdressed and the cheese and nuts were very segregated on one side of the plate which was kind of weird. We also tried the manchego cheese/crab stuffed clams and these were tasty but only four little guys on the plate, not much crab taste, not really worth $10. Salad was $8, most entrees in the $20's. Glad we went but I'll probably just stick with the pub grub or try the other place that begins with G down from the Tap if we go back to record shop. Everyone else enjoyed the Tacos Lupita down the street. If there's something else decent, let me know.
