Tavern Road

I didn't see a topic dedicated to Tavern Road, so here it is.

Last night, we shared:
Focaccia with honey butter - are they microwaving these to heat them up? Whatever the method is, the buns are very chewy.
Hunter's sausage - really meaty and slightly smoky.
Whipped goat’s milk feta - this came on what looked like mini-English muffins, but were definitely some sort of grilled bread. There was a sweet flavor that overpowered any goat essence.
Lamb meatballs, baby artichoke, sheep’s milk yogurt - possibly more pureed in texture than I would have loved - the exterior of these were crisp, verging on crunchy. The baby artichokes were delightful.
Smoked fish belly, strawberry, eva’s pea greens, mint, ginger-orange vinaigrette - The smoked fish belly didn't have a chance in standing up to strawberries and a rather tasty dressing, but at least all the textures worked.
Baby beets, dates, pea tendrils, horseradish - I think this dish may have changed from the menu as I couldn't detect any dates or horseradish, but our beets were glazed to perfection.

I felt rather mezza mezza about the food, but perhaps a seat at the bar, a genever cocktail in hand, and some charcuterie could be quite pleasant.
