As with all venues along this strip of Henderson Avenue, Nick Badovinus’ new upscale tavern is hopping. Mixologist Jason Kosmas mixes drinks with his nose, smelling the glass after adding each ingredient to ensure the ratio’s right. (Ask him for a Thunderball, Bourbon and Bullets, or New Fang). Hungry? Try the Cleaver & Block Burger, made with ground chuck and brisket and topped with cheddar and caramelized onion.
Update: Neighborhood Services Tavern is now Badovinus’ new Tried and True restaurant and bar.
