Light Horse Tavern is in a space that served as a speakeasy during Prohibition, and while that tugs at our heartstrings, it’s also the only particularly interesting thing about this American spot in Paulus Hook. If you do find yourself here for brunch or dinner, you should stick to the bar menu and get the burger or fish and chips, which both come with thin, tasty fast-food style fries.
