2017 Dining Guide: Tasty Tavern


Is there anything more convenient during a night at the bar than having a kitchen right there on the premises? No, there isn’t. These are our favorite gay bar kitchens.

You’d be hard pressed to find a more delicious meal at these prices. Cooks are just on the other side of the bar ready to fix you full-course plates of man-that-hits-the-spot. Sauces made with real butter and meat that’s never frozen ups the bar food game.
Eat this: Yes, they have jalapeno poppers and fried mozzarella, but one of three butcher-cut, chargrilled Steak Dinners with two fresh sides is not to be missed. You’re welcome.
