With nine locations spread across Massachusetts from Salem to Burlington, Tavern in the Square is quickly becoming a household name. Its recent location in Shrewsbury called our attention for a list of reasons but we quickly found that it was a perfect fit for #SundayFunday.
Let’s start by breaking through a common misconception: Tavern in the Square is not only for sports fans, it’s for foodies too. The menu is lined with comfort foods including the sweet sticky spicy Korean pork ribs; the wing sampler – a selection of the piri piri, buffalo, and signature smoked wings; and Bayou chicken pasta – pasta topped with blackened chicken, sweet corn, jalapenos, bacon and Parmesan cream. There are no shortage of ways to satisfy the hungriest of customers. Let’s not forget its extensive list of beers, canned and year-round drafts that include rotations of New Belgium Fat Tire and Downtown Hopped Grapefruit. Although pairing the chopped Greek salad with the year-round draft like Wachusett Blueberry is an easy win, we tend to opt in for something sweet.
Sharing is caring and at Tavern in the Square they take this notion to heart with the molten brownie – a dessert described as, “warm chocolate brownie with vanilla and chocolate ice cream dripped with Guinness caramel.” But, don’t be fooled by the description. This molten brownie dessert is not your average sized brownie with a scoop of ice cream on the side. With two container sized servings of ice cream – one vanilla and one chocolate – stacked on top of each other, Tavern in the Square serves up a dessert fit to share with three or more foodies. The stacked ice cream, coupled with a bowl of warm brownies is the reason Tavern in the Square makes our list of #SundayFunday destinations.
