MYSTERY DINER: McWethy’s Tavern in Romeoville offers singular Scottish and American dishes – The Herald

ROMEOVILLE – McWethy’s Tavern: Great food and good use from start to finish.

Three of us walked into this bustling venue but reservations on a weekend night and were seated immediately.

“Tall table, ok?” The horde asked.

Of course.

We immediately perceived menus and a bottle of water, and afterwards a server took a splash order. We had copiousness of time to peruse a menu. And that was good since we got stranded on that appetiser to split.

Should we get a Pretzel Crusted Jumbo Lump Crab Cake with Cajun remoulade and churned greens for $12? Or how about one of a flatbreads?

The Lamb Flatbread ($12) came with cucumber tzatziki, tomato, kalamata olives, red onion and feta cheese. The Italian Sausage Flatbread ($11) with uninformed mozzarella, basil pesto, arugula and caramelized onion was really tempting.

And there was a Spiced Candied Bacon – 3 pieces for $5.

But we finished adult bursting a comfortable pretzel nuggets with ale butter glitter and scotch horseradish drop for $8. The apportionment was inexhaustible and so good. The ale and scotch didn’t overcome a dish, and a horseradish gave it a right bite.

Now for a entrées. One of us systematic a Ale Battered Fish Chips for $15. This was dual vast cod pieces (large adequate that this chairman brought one home) with hand-cut black peppers fries, chef-made tartar sauce, malt vinegar and lemon.

The cost of entrées ranged from $15 for shepherd’s cake to $23 for shrimp scampi. Steaks ranged from $26 (Simply Grilled Salmon) to $49 (28-ounce porterhouse).

Ale Battered Fish Chips also came with a salad – churned greens (no iceberg) and a good change of cucumbers, tomato and red onion; a croutons had only a right volume of break and seasoning. The French dressing: not too sweet, a bit of tang. The fish was proposal and flaky on a inside and crispy on a outside.

The third chairman in a celebration systematic a grilled duck breast with lettuce, onion and plight on a toasted hurl with chef-made potato chips for $12. The delicious duck complemented a ambience of a roll. A mix of seasonings supplement a good season to a chips, that came out crispy.

I had a half-pound Tavern C.A.B. Steak Burger, that also came with lettuce, tomato and plight on a toasted tangle hurl and also cost $12. Instead of chips, we systematic a hand-cut black peppers fries, nonetheless chips and citrus slaw were options. Or one could surrogate Parmesan fries for $2.

“Cheese?” The server asked.

“No appreciate you.”

“How about bacon?”

OK, she had me and some-more than done adult for flitting on a Spiced Candied Bacon. The burger came out a good middle rare, as ordered. Even with saving half a fries for a take-out box (so I’d have room for dessert), we (almost) upheld on dessert since we was so full.

We systematic Chocolate Molten Cake since it’s baked to sequence and takes 20 minutes, something to keep in mind. This $9 palatable cake came out beautifully plated with crème anglaise and strawberry coulis. One could also sequence (we didn’t) an discretionary drop of vanilla ice cream for $1.

I left so splendidly full, we vowed not to eat for a week. But we capitulated a subsequent day. With a leftover fries. They’re good reheated and surfaced with melted cheese. Just so we know. In box we move some home, too.
