Food & Drink

Take your appetite and thirst back to the old school

Pick up a little history before promptly forgetting it all at Century House, the nostalgia-steeped tavern from chef Richard Wilt & co. serving turn-of-the-century cocktails and fancy Southern meals in an 1894-built crib called the Hubbard House, making it one old mother indeed

Start with meats (sweet sopressata, housemade pate, etc.) and cheeses (aged goat from GA, taleggio double cream ripe from Italy), then get two-for-$10 "bites" like duck confit spring rolls, or an 8oz angus burger w/ smoked bacon & shoestring fries dubbed the Woodstock Traditional, likely because you'll likely freak out if you don't get it. Then have sex with hippies

Those meat and cheese plates can also be a warmup for Springer Mountain chicken & dumplings, angus steaky-ness (grilled 10oz rib eyes, pan-roasted flat irons), or Gulf shrimp & lobster risotto. Then, dessert yourself with slow-cooked "forbidden rice pudding", which even the most sin-free men want to fork

The bar's got Ommegang Hennepin & six other drafts, nine bottled brews, plus way-old-school 'tails like the Beam/ sweet vermouth/ absinthe/ bitters/ ginger ale Waldorf, too many of which will make it hard for you to fetch a bone.
