The Roosevelt Tavern

We went last nite to the Roosevelt Tavern - its Matt from Matt's Big Breakfast's new spot. Its located at 816 N 3rd Street, which is across from Holga's at McKinley.

Its an adorable restored house with parking in the back. The living room in the front has a fire place, a table and chairs, and a couple of bar stools using floating shelves for a table. the bar is kind of small, but has a TON of beer on tap. The beer is amazingly cold, and we had the house draft at 4.50 a pint, which I found out was brewed by 4 Peaks. It's sort of lager-like *sorry, not normally a beer drinker but I wanted to try*. The wine list was extensive, altho I don't recall seeing anything bubbly. I'm a fan of prosecco ;)

Each other room has a variety of tables or couches or high barstools, and the back room has a long wooden table, which I assume would be able to be reserved for events.

For nibbling, we had the cheese plate, which had an aged vermont cheddar, a nice bleu, and my fav - humboldt fog. I think it was around 10? Nice dark bread served warm with the plate. They have a couple of sandwhiches on the menu, and will be adding more food as they go on.

I loved it, altho I admit I was a little sad, since its probably the last time we'll ever get the big pretty table in the back ;). I know its going to be a huge hit, and on its 3rd nite open, it was already full. Not packed, but full. I love Matts, but can hardly get in for breakfast any more. I fear this will go the same way. ;) I'll be back.

They are open from 6-2 right now, altho I don't know if those hours will change as they go forward.

Parking is limited in the back, or on the street/side streets.
