The staff is superfriendly, as is the neighborhood crowd, and the menu goes well beyond the burgers and fries you would expect from a ""tavern"". They have daily specials (yummy - cobb salad) and some excellent wines along with drafts from the bar. And crayons are provided for the artist in you - more than once I have come away from a meal here with colorful meeting notes taken on the paper tableclothes. Although it gets crowded in a cozy way, and you can usually find a table without any trouble (in the back if you prefer to be away from the bar). If you're into a sterile, cosmopolitan-touting crowd, this might not be the place for you, but if what you want is good food eaten to the nice lull of a happy crowd, get thee to Tavern on Jane.
Pros: Close to Subway, Friendly Service, Good Food
