The Ordinarie is a tavern in downtown Long Beach with a massive menu of modern pub fare. And, despite some gimmicky-seeming dishes, the food is quite good all-around. The chicken pot pie bites are like vegetable and chicken dumplings with a flaky, buttery crust, and the ham and cheddar popovers go surprisingly well with the maple butter that comes on the side. As far as bigger plates go, we always order the burgers and sandwiches instead of the actual entrees. Get the Tavern Burger with fontina cheese and caramelized onions, or the huge fried chicken sandwich. They’ve got good cocktails, an extremely impressive beer list, and live music most nights, so expect to spend a lot of time here.
