The comfort food served at the West End Tavern is what would result if a fast-moving drunken picnic crashed headlong into a great neighborhood bar, with beach food and backyard barbecue tangling up with lawn-fete classics and powerful drinks. We're talking sautéed greens and deviled eggs, roast-pork sandwiches, roast chicken and alcoholic root-beer floats -- all served on a patio with one of the greatest views in the area, which gives the place an endless-summer feel.
