• Farmhouse Tavern

Every once in a while, after a series of bad or just mediocre dining experiences, I wonder if I’ve become too cranky and the problem is not the restaurants, but me. Maybe too-small, not-quite-good-enough dishes have become the norm, I’ll think, and I should just get used to it. Places like Farmhouse Tavern, though, restore my faith in restaurants (and, just as importantly, in myself).
