This black-owned restaurant feels like its name, a rustic laidback tavern and a chill spot for a group brunch or dinner for two. Warm wood benches and brick walls curate coziness while delicious American fare, good music, and board games keep the mood light. Here, you’ll find refuge in classic comfort foods– hot crab cakes, banana foster French toast, the juicy Grand Butcher Boy burger, and more. Request the garden for a serene yet communal vibe and do bottomless – always. Rustik Tavern is also located in a very walkable neighborhood, so the adventure doesn’t have to end when brunch is over. Fair warning: twenty-somethings and older aunties alike love to dine here after a Sunday morning service, so make reservations in order to beat the afternoon rush.
