Royal Tavern

Evan | Nov 4, 2002 02:41 PM

Had a chance to stop in the newly opened Royal Tavern in Bella Vista on Friday night, so I figured I'd give a brief run-down on the joint. Located on Passyunk just below Christian, it's run by three partners, one of whom (Steve Simon) owns the Khyber in Old City. Menu features some high-end pub fare and about 6 good draught beers (Hefeweizen, Yards ESA, Guinness, etc.) along with a number of bottled specialties. Decor is very reminiscent of Northern Liberties' Standard Tap - dark wood, low lights - as is the menu. I had a nice bowl of lentil lamb stew - perfect for the unseasonably cold weather - while my fiance tried the grilled veggie sandwich. Looked to be a great jukebox, too, and for those quavering at the thought, it was not at an unreasonable volume. I think it's only open for dinner at this point....
