David and I kicked off the week, with a visit to one of our favorite spots in Dover, NH; Sonny’s Tavern ❤️ and of course with a visit to Sonny’s I decided a throwback to my Lemon Meringue Cocktail was needed. Two, it’s Thirsty Thursday friends.
We’ve considered Sonny’s our local spot since they opened in 2013 for four reasons:
1. Our love is named Sonny!
2. They opened in the former Barley Pub, which was a younger self local favorite.
3. They make incredible food, cocktails and have great beers on draft.
4. The vibe is chilled and funky with top notch service!
That feels more like eight reasons, but bottomline; its great and you NEED TO GET TO SONNY’S TAVERN!
On Monday, we visited Sonny’s for their Bird & Brew special. This special includes a Fried Chicken Sandwich, with house pickles and Alabama White Sauce & a draft beer of your choice for $10. Did I mention, they pour many local beers (i.e. Chapel + Main, Stoneface, Smuttynose)?
David and I looked at the menu and we were deciding between two starters: Grilled Shrimp/Olive/Ham/Cherry Peppers or Trout/Shishito Peppers/Pork which both sounded amazing…until the server came around and told us about their special starters which included Smoked Salmon Toast with Marscapone/Pickled Onions/Radish/Pea Shoots/Sprouts. OMG, we were immediately intrigued by the special and it was amazing!
Our Chicken Sandwiches arrived shortly after.
Boy was it a delicious visit! Thanks as always Sonny’s Tavern & cheers!
