Delaney’s Tap Room

Because I have a couple days off from work and Kevin is on break from school this week, I dragged Kevin down to New Haven for the 2nd time in two days to go down to IKEA, so we could look at some furniture for my upcoming home office makeover and buy some new wine glasses, because we’re clumsy and have broken the majority of ours over the course of the last two years.

Because he was such a good sport and because it was getting close to dinner time, I decided to treat him to one of our favorite bars in New Haven – Delaney’s Tap Room and Restaurant.

There are many things I love about Delaney’s, but at the top of the list is the over 60 beers they have on tap – often a few that neither Kevin nor myself have ever heard of, which is really saying a lot. They also have a large assortment of bottled beers and a nice selection of wine.

The food is also quite good. My personal favorites are the Ontario Wrap, a very spicy buffalo wrap, and the Delaney Salad, a HUGE salad with oven roasted turkey breast, hard boiled eggs, cheese and bacon (how can anything with bacon not be good?). Kevin frequently orders the Southern Wrap, a really yummy wrap with BBQ chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese.

The decor is warm, attractive and comfortable and they offer outdoor seating in warmer months. The waitstaff is generally friendly and knowledgeable.

I highly recommend a visit to Delaney’s next time you’re in the New Haven area. The excellent beer selection, great food, and a warm friendly atmosphere is sure to be a hit with everyone!

  1. I chuckled a bit @ the IKEA reference because my girlfriend is absolutely infatuated w/ that store. She’s gonna be dragging me there soon to get stuff for our apt. lol.

  2. Haha… IKEA – every man’s worst nightmare. Just remember, she needs to reward you with a trip to the bar after your done. It’s only fair – you’ll probably need a drink 🙂
