Royal Tavern looks like your average corner pub got a little bit of a facelift. The brick exterior is painted bright blue, and you won’t find any ripped barstools or sticky tables by the narrow bar area. The menu also has things you’d find at a regular bar, like a burger and nachos, listed right next to dishes that you wouldn’t normally consider “bar food.” There's fire-roasted mussel stew, butter chicken in a tomato-coconut curry, and a delicious lemongrass yuba banh mi.
