Plate to Date: The Huntley Taverne’s Pork Chop and Bourbon Cocktail

Buckle up for this culinary adventure in Summit, New Jersey

By Sarah Emily Gilbert 

The Huntley Taverne is a rustic eatery with cathedral ceilings, a wraparound porch, and two wood-burning stoves. It is the ideal spot to grab a drink and savor seasonal tavern-style cuisine. Among their culinary delights is the Asian Plum Grilled Pork Chop.

The Pork Chop entrée features golden mashed potatoes, grilled pear, and apple relish, which pairs perfectly with The Sage Advice. This dynamic cocktail includes Maker’s Mark Bourbon, homemade cinnamon-pear shrub, freshly squeezed orange juice, and fresh sage. If that doesn’t quench your thirst, perhaps an item from their 250 bottle wine list will do the trick. Come the warm weather months, you’re guaranteed to find something special on The Huntley Taverne’s menu, which features organic produce, cheese, and grains from across the Garden State.

The Huntley Taverne is the brainchild of Harvest Restaurants, a family owned restaurant company behind some of northern New Jersey’s leading eateries. They have 11 restaurants through out out the state including Rock Restaurant and Brewery in Berkeley Heights, 3 West in Basking Ridge; Roots Steakhouse in Summit, Morristown, and Ridgewood; Tabor Road Tavern and Grato in Morris Plains; Urban Table in Morristown and Basking Ridge; and Addams Tavern in Westfield.
