Tucked at the back of a 19th-century brownstone, home to a family-run hotel, the Tabard is an eclectic and shamelessly romantic destination. Dine in the lounge in front of the fireplace, in the garden under the shade of a silk parachute, or in the private dining room. The menu favors local, seasonal ingredients. House-smoked salmon, served with hard-boiled egg, red onion and horseradish crème fraîche is always good. Sunday’s crowds (seriously, make reservations far in advance) brunch on just-made donuts and eggs benedict.
