Fodor's Expert Review Custom House Tavern
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
This Printers Row restaurant has sandstone walls, cozy leather booths, and picture windows—it's a handsome but not overly masculine setting that mirrors the food. You can get a mean burger, of course, but adventurous diners should try the sea scallop and veal sweetbread or roasted farm chicken with buttermilk gnocchi. For a more casual evening, saddle up at the bar to pair signature cocktails with savory small plates like chicken-liver pate and oysters on the half shell.
