Unpretentious. That’s what the owners of Tavern on the Hill, who prefer to be known by their first names—Steve and Lee—had in mind when they opened their new bar/restaurant in Mount Vernon. “This neighborhood is kind of fancy and we wanted a place that was more laid back. Everyone feels comfortable here,” says Steve.
Chef Tim Engle’s menu includes basic tavern fare like the Three’s Company—an overstuffed sandwich with corned beef, turkey and roast beef—along with eight kinds of hot dogs, beautiful burgers and entrees ranging from barbecued brisket with veggies and roasted potatoes to N.Y. strip steak with blue cheese cream sauce. Bonus: they also serve breakfast all day.
