" A carnivore, a locavore, a vegan, a vegetarian, a celiac ... and, what the heck, a pescatarian...walked into a bar. " 


If it was Tarbell's, there wouldn't be a

ripple in their rhythm.  


  • Unusually versatile and accommodating
  • A philosophy of fresh, simple, really good food
  • Seafood from the best places in the world
  • Meats hand selected and aged just for us
  • Produce from local farmers since Day One


We do all this in an atmosphere of refined relaxation with an attention to service that's becoming a lost art.  


And our barrel-aged cocktails aren't bad, either.
