It's been a couple of weeks since I enjoyed a lobster roll, so last night, I was off to The Tap Trailhouse in Boston. This restaurant is near all of the pubs by Faneuil Hall and offers classic American and New England fare.

This place wouldn't be called The Tap if it didn't have a full menu of alcohol. There are several beers on tap, bottles and cans of beer (including my season favorite Dell's Lemonade beer by Narragansett), wines, gins and mixed drinks. I wanted a sangria since it was so hot out. Would you believe they don't have sangria?!?! Ouch. I ordered a "Cobbler" (Oloroso Sherry, Crème de Cassis, Cinnamon, Seasonal Fruit) instead. It wasn't much like a sangria at all, but was still refreshing.

I enjoyed a kettle of clam chowder for an app. It's served in a little cauldron that's piping hot. My fiancée enjoyed their homemade pretzel sticks with dipping sauce. For dinner, it was lobster roll time. It had large chunks of lobster meat and was served with tasty homemade fries. Other entrees include chicken & barley stew, burgers and a seasonal spinach ravioli with artichokes and olives.

The caramel apple tart came highly recommended for dessert and it did not disappoint. This warm tart is topped off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The pastry itself was very flavorful and the whole dish was complimented by just enough caramel.

The food at The Tap Trailhouse is very good. They also offer brunch on the weekend which I am interested in trying. The only downside is this place can get loud. Union Street is the home to loud, partying college students on weekend nights. They often pack the bars of every restaurant including The Tap. They also check ID's at the door, which is a pain. So, if you're looking for a quiet, romantic night in Boston, this ain't your place, at least on weekends. , , ,
