About Russell House Tavern


A New American Tavern, Russell House Tavern is a comfortable gathering spot for every occasion-from casual lunch breaks on the patio to after-work cocktails in the upstairs tavern to functions in the private dining room and everything in between.


Executive Chef Thomas Borgia delivers a seasonally-inspired menu of modern interpretations of American classics, including signatures like the crispy fried Cape Cod oysters with Miso broth and ginger aioli, Nose to tail pork fritters with salsa verde, a selection of Tavern Pizzas and Local Berkshire Pork Trio with Herb-Grilled Loin, Confit Belly, Smoked Shoulder, Anson Mills Grits among other dishes.

To complement Chef Borgia's menu, Bar Manager Ashish Mitra serves an interesting collection of all-American wines, including two regional wines on tap, and a locally-driven craft beer selection. The cocktail menu strikes a balance between familiar classics and modern hand-crafted recipes using only fresh juices, homemade syrups and infusions. Ashish's current conceptions include the Sottobosco (St. George Terroir Gin, Campari, Byrrh Grand Quina, House Cranberry Bitters) and the Homecoming (Rittenhouse 100 proof rye, St. George Pear Brandy, Carpano Bianco, Purple Shiso, Pink Peppercorn, Lemon & Cinnamon. A true cocktail historian, Ashish enjoys sharing the story behind each drink he concocts.
