Branch Water Tavern is a great example of a uniquely American
restaurant style that features a well-stocked bar and simple meat and
seafood dishes that don't have French names. In many ways, the Heights-area new
American tavern is a throwback to early American eateries. The menu
includes oysters on the half shell, crab cakes, venison medallions,
beefsteak and smoke-roasted pork chops - items that were just as
common on the menus of American taverns of the 18th century.
