More on Mount Washington Tavern.

Posted 3/5/2008

Why We Go: You could get lost in the maze of separate spaces--sports bar, cozy bar, front room, garden room (with skylight and delightful old tile floor), restaurant bar, upstairs outdoorsy drinkery--but just keep going until you find the spot most comfortable for you. We switch it up according to season and mood.

What We Eat: Cobb salad; seafood nicely done all ways, including a juicy salmon topped with a layer of thin potato strips; fried and raw oysters; and creamed spinach.

What We'd Change: It's like Key West threw up in the back garden room. Sure, somewhere an older Mount Washington lady or gentleman is singing the praises of the faux palm trees covered with little white lights, but we say Hemingway overkill.
