Archie’s Tap & Table
Archie’s Tap & Table is a popular and highly rated gastropub serving American comfort food in a modern setting. Chef Alex Pertsovsky, who has worked in top New York and Chicago restaurants, uses locally grown seasonal ingredients for the eatery’s small yet innovative menu. The eatery’s decor is simple and modern, with metal chairs and wooden tables, wood walls with small colorful artworks displayed, and a white-tiled bar.
For appetizers, their crispy Chipotle honey wings are served with Maytag blue cheese, while their mushroom parmesan cigars are accompanied by smoked paprika yogurt. For a taste of the sea, their PEI mussels are prepared with amber beer and chorizo, while their saffron glazed shrimp are paired with pickled jalapeno. Their Bibb lettuce salad with frisee, Applewood bacon, and scallion with a blue cheese vinaigrette is also a popular starter and can be made into an entree with the addition of buttermilk fried chicken.
Main dishes include a classic fried chicken with waffles, Cajun pork chop with mushroom and baby kale, and cheddar pork sausage with pickled onion. Seafood features prominently in their king crab mac and cheese prepared with cheddar, goat cheese, parmesan, and gruyere, as well as in their oven roast halibut with mustard seed, sunchoke, asparagus, and fennel.
On weekends, Archie’s also offers a brunch menu featuring classic options like corned beef hash and eggs, poached eggs with Canadian bacon, sour cream pancakes, and a shrimp and avocado omelet with herb-dusted French fries.
