Warmly greeted at the host stand, seated very promptly. Our waiter Dave introduced himself soon after we were seated and wished us a happy anniversary. He took our drink order and when he came back with those he answered the questions we had about the menu. During our meal he was present but not in an obtrusive way. The food was fantastic, I highly recommend the lobster Mac and cheese as a meal extra. Overall the experience was amazing and we were very pleased with everything that Bookbinders provided.

About the restaurant
Tavern & Grocery offers modern interpretations of classically inspired dishes served in a modern update of a restored early 1800's boarding house. The building was a grocery from its inception in 1820 all the way until 1973, and was also a tavern, boarding house, and restaurant along the way. Ingredients are sourced locally whenever possible, with much of our produce grown on our own farm during the spring, summer, and fall. We even have our own flock of laying hens and use as many of our own eggs as possible! Saturday and Sunday brunch is a must with both classic brunch dishes as well as creative re-interpretations, and, of course, the perfect bloody mary. Our bar focuses on creative craft and classic cocktails, as well as wine, serving the best examples of many varieties with a large selection of wines offered by the glass. We have a very nice selection of beer, both on tap and in bottle, that even the most discerning will love.

Parking was convenient and the ambiance of the restaurant itself is very nice. There is a warm welcoming feeling upon walking in. We arrived during happy hour with 8 guests. We ordered the gumbo, mahi mahi, pork, shrimp po boy, fried green tomatoes, biscuits and brussel sprouts for the table. Everyone was very happy with their food and drinks. They were out of a few things we wanted but we quickly found replacements that were just as enjoyable. Our server was friendly and attentive. At the end of our evening, we were gifted one of their recipe books with congratulatory messages for our wedding that day. It was such a lovely way to end the night. Overall my party had a great experience and would definitely visit again.

About the restaurant
Le Yaca began in a tiny, country village(Courchevel)in the French Alps in 1964.Daniele Bourderau & Gerard decided that it would be fun to open a small restaurant. When friends learned of their plans they told the hopeful restaurateurs that they were crazy to think that people would drive 8 kilometers on a winding, icy road for dinner. Daniele and Gerard hesitated for 3 months and then decided: “yaca le faire,” a contraction of the French phrase “ il n’y a qu’a le faire” which basically means “let’s do it.” They called the restaurant Le Yaca as a gag. But the name caught on with customers, who were amused by the pun and contributed to the restaurant’s lore by inventing “yaca-isms ” of their own: yaca y aller (let’s go). Daniele came to the United States & opened Le Yaca in Williamsburg. Daniel Abid bought le Yaca in 2001. Daniel worked and trained in such prestigious places as “Le Pre Catelan” and “Lenotre” in Paris; “L’Amandier” and “Roger Verge; and to top it all off “Alain D
