Fodor's Expert Review River Tavern and Wine Bar
This sleek, sophisticated tavern in the heart of Chester functions both as a cheery neighborhood restaurant and as a bona fide destination for fans of first-rate farm-to-table cuisine. The emphasis is on fresh, locally sourced ingredients, so the menu changes frequently. Dinner might include grilled Stonington swordfish with roasted potatoes and a bacon-corn salad, or braised house-cured pastrami with a sweet-potato purée and crispy onions. The adjacent wine bar serves a wide selection of glass pours.
