I’ve been religiously checking Iron Horse Tavern’s Facebook and Twitter for updates on when they’d open. Imagine my delight when driving down High Street during my lunchtime break, I spotted an “Open” sign on the building, the previous location of Madeleine’s. I literally squealed.
When I came back later on Wednesday for dinner, there were no other patrons inside. Which is what I expected – they aren’t advertising yet. I’m assuming just passers-by are aware. It was just the second day of soft opening, so, of course, they’re still working out kinks. We were seated in the left side of the dining room after requesting a table (as opposed to a high-top – I’m way too short for those. Awk.).
First impressions: I definitely get the tavern feel. Black furniture and dark brown woods cloak the interior. The wall decorations have a sort of worn-in vibe. It’s pretty cool.
