“I stopped by the new Heller & Wilde on Friday night, formerly Bayou then briefly Alfred House?? It was awesome! It is a prohibition inspired bar with modern twists on the classics. Great 20’s inspired cocktail list and thoughtfully delicious food. I think it was a soft opening this past weekend, but thinking it should be fully open this week? I also really liked their communal tables outside on the front patio!”

Ed. Note: In June 2017 Shaw’s Tavern had massive lines for the equally anticipated Comey Congressional hearing. Puts today’s initial decision, if flawed, in a bit of perspective.

Co-owners and former roommates Vinnie Rotondaro and Rory Adair are bringing a laidback, eclectically cozy vibe to the newly renovated space, which was originally built in 1890 and actually was a living room in a past life.
