The Tavern at Great Meadows might seem like a typical tavern at first. Friendly bartenders behind a full bar, occasional Fireball specials and karaoke nights, and a kitchen churning out classic bar food, like burgers. On closer examination, though, you'll notice the food's Portuguese flair. The culinary team braises steak Portuguese style, for example, and tops it with ham and egg, or adds pizzazz to the house clams with chourico, Portuguese sausage. Even the house burger, topped with caramelized onions and mushrooms, arrives on a rustic Portuguese roll. However, there's some pure Americana, too, like chicken wings smothered in sauces such as buffalo or teriyaki.
