The Tabard Inn is delightfully historic and creaky, with corridors and staircases that make the place seem endless. (The inn opened its doors to guests in 1922.) You can dine in the cosy basement restaurant or out on the courtyard patio. It's a popular brunch choice for the homemade donuts and an ample savory and sweet dishes. The atmosphere and crowd shift come dinnertime, when select evenings feature live jazz by the fireplace.
