Good ol’ Comfort Food at Town Hall

Located in the historic Meco building, Town Hall features a warm and chic space featuring brick walls and stunning chandeliers! I’ve loved Town Hall since they opened and I think this was my 5th time dining here.  Everytime I’ve been here, I’ve enjoyed the service, the ambiance and most importantly, the comfort food.  So when we were invited to dinner here, we simply couldn’t resist!

We started off with appetizers to share, and instead of ordering what they featured as their starters, we requested to share the sides which they were happy to accommodate.  We got the jalapeño cornbread , smoked andouille jambalaya, roasted brussels sprouts and baked macaroni and cheese. I have to admit, I liked them all! The cornbread was small and tasty, the jambalaya had a perfect hint of spice, the brussels sprouts were perfectly cooked and the macaroni and cheese was creamy and cheesy.

Everyone ordered something different, from Seafood étouffée, Buttermilk fried chicken, House smoked St. Louis ribs to Natural beef short rib and grilled hangar steak.  I tried a little taste of everyone’s except the beef. I thought the seafood étouffée, which I learned is served similar as a stew, offered a smoky flavor, it was very good. The buttermilk fried chicken was definitely good, you can’t really go wrong with fried food but really, they seriously use some secret batter.  The house smoked St. Louis ribs were very flavorful and came right off the bone. I myself ordered the Beeler Farm’s pork tenderloin and belly,  served with Meyer lemon marmalade and lemon thyme jus. The pork tenderloin was wrapped with bacon and oh so tender and moist, and the pork belly melted like butter. I really enjoyed the lemon flavors and I really liked combining the chewy Meyer lemon marmalade with the pork belly!
