Dual personalities of this longtime downtown destination present distinct experiences. While a glittering 1940s crystal chandelier creates a polished ambiance in the formal dining room, the expansive yesteryear tavern, trimmed in warm wood accents, provides a stage for causal camaraderie. Enhancements include 25 craft taps and no-cover charge live music three nights a week.
Chef Peter Felton enables guests to eat to a world beat with a New American menu seasoned liberally with enticing ethnic flavors. The fresh-and-local focused fare also features an impressive array of burgers and inventive pub fare, with plentiful vegetarian and gluten-free options. Creative mixology is a specialty here, and a “Pearl Card” rewards regulars for their loyalty.
Q&A with Jonathan Davis, co-owner
How does sustainability influence your life and business?
Downtown is a lesson in reuse, and that’s a tenet of sustainability. I’m an avid gardener with a profound respect for nature and the environment. You need to be a steward to the world to some extent.
