Neighborhood pubs offer locals a place to go where everybody knows their names, but is unaware of their embarrassing childhood nicknames. Enjoy comfortable levels of anonymity with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $30 worth of pub fare and drinks at Taps Signature Cuisine and Bar in Litchfield Park.
Taps Signature Cuisine and Bar’s chefs put their culinary creativity to the test, adding a posh twist to their menu of classic pub grub. Limber chomping muscles with starters such as fire kettle chips sprinkled with hot sauce and scallions ($6) or delight taste buds with the pesto chili bread, which ferries pesto and thai sweet-chili sauce toward the tongue on a vessel of herb ciabatta bread ($6). Handfuls of hot wings ($9 for one dozen) anoint embarrassingly bare fingers and lips with a variety of sauces, and a hefty selection of flatbread pizzas ($12–$16) can split itself among a handful of companions. Fill fists with a variety of sandwiches, such as the roman chicken, with its savory mélange of sliced chicken breast, caesar dressing, and a duo of parmesan and provolone cheeses ($8).
An extensive wine list waits in the wings to extinguish fiery pangs of thirst, and pairing suggestions are listed after most menu items to prevent embarrassing duos such as beef and chardonnay or Batman and pinot noir. Taps holds special events every night of the week in order to distract brains from growing jealous of the royal treatment bestowed upon mouths. Put noggins to the test at Monday-night trivia or cut a rug with tunes provided by a live DJ every Saturday night.
Taps Signature Cuisine and Bar
Local art and regional flavors foster a sense of community at the two locations of Taps Signature Cuisine and Bar, prompting ABC 15 to describe the Litchfield Park restaurant as "a place where you can kick off your shoes, stay a while, and enjoy some local music." The chefs add distinctive southwestern flavors to dishes by occasionally incorporating anaheim chilies or chipotle-spiced condiments from the area's naturally occurring ketchup geysers. These piquant touches lend a welcome kick to certain recipes, whereas the rest of the upscale American menu—which includes grilled rib eyes, organic chicken breasts, and roasted fillets of salmon—embraces more classic flavors.
