Food & Drink

Savory fare & 'tails for days

Old Town's upscale gastropub was "inspired by the most notable inventors & inventions", which means brass-pipe'd bookshelfs, giant lightbulbs, and, presumably, lots of ShamWows behind the bar. On the bar, though, a former PX cocktailer mixes goodness like "The Commonwealth" (single malt whiskey, Canton Ginger cognac, and Luxardo Maraschino liqueur), and "The Headless Horseman", with Boyd and Blair Vodka, Angostura bitters, ginger beer, and lime.The food highlight is a Chesapeake Pot Pie filled with crab, rockfish, roasted corn, potatoes, peas, and a "pinch of the bay", though you'll need one on your cheeks to remind you you're not dreaming.
