January 29, 2014 Granary Tavern
Granary Tavern is a relatively new addition to the Glynn Hospitality Group – they own Coogan’s, Clery’s, Dillon’s, The Purple Shamrock and Hurricane’s to name a few. Located on the Greenway, at the end of Milk Street, in the summer time, they have a great outdoor patio.
We stopped in on a Saturday, on the early side, and the place was packed! With two floors, the Granary is warm and inviting with it’s exposed brick walls and exposed wood beams. I think it’s pretty cool that instead of crayons here for the kids, they provide an etch a sketch.
We grab a table by the door upstairs. On cold days like tonight, it can get a little chilly every time someone opens the door. I get the Granary Burger ($16), Archer Angus Farms, Vermont cheddar, bacon, fried egg, brioche roll, hand-cut fries. The egg is cooked perfectly, just a little runny, and with the bacon, it adds a great saltiness to the burger. The brioche bun is buttery and lightly toasted. The fries were good, albeit being cooked a touch too long.
And how could you come here and NOT try the chicken and waffle? Statler cut (boneless breast with first wing joint and tenderloin attached) Giannone (poultry), waffle, maple drizzle, honey butter ($17). The chicken was a touch over cooked, but still tasty. I love the flavors and textures of this dish, the sweet from the maple and honey butter and the crunch from the chicken.
Service was good, but could have been better seeing as we were sitting right next the the POS stand and our waitress was walking by us constantly. Looking forward to the warmer weather and hanging outside on the patio. Check out their beer menu here.
