Status: Opened last Friday
Now open in Long Beach, Belmont Shore's first gastropub: Tavern on 2. The casual bar and eatery sports a small interior dining room, bar area and patio. Open for lunch and dinner Monday through Friday and brunch on the weekends, Tavern on 2 offers a wide variety of quasi-New American fare with a European pub feel including Oxtail Poutine, Roasted Cauliflower, Chicken Wings, Smoked Haddock Chowder (Fridays only), Caesar Salad, the obligatory signature burger (available with a gluten-free bun), and sandwiches with fillings like pulled pork, short ribs and chorizo.
Craft beers on tap rotate. Tavern on 2 claims to carry wines that no one else in Belmont Shore carries. Call ahead for variety and check the Twitter for specials.
