The Annabel Lee Tavern

Thought Friday's weather (dark and dreary) would be a perfect day to snap a pic of the new Annabel Lee Tavern on South Clinton Street.

Here it is, in all its glory.

I was there on Saturday night - the place is really great. Something tells me it won't be a flop like the previous bars there.

I think it used to be called Bar Harbor.

I'm really impressed with what Kurt has done with the place.

It was Bar Harbor...but before that it was Liquid Assets, and before that, the Red Baron. Nothing has done well there, so here's to hoping Kurt can break the cycle.

Is it named after the Poe poem? C'mon Sam!!! We want facts on this blog!!!!

Great website! Very sexy.

It was a sad, sad night as I ordered the last Sheppard’s Pie to be served at Annabel Lee, as the menu changes tomorrow.

I'm sure it will be back, but it's sad to see it go. Those lamb lollipops will be missed too.

The new menu, I've been assured, will be even better than then the previous one.

This place had 15 specials tonight. If I had to describe the entrees here, I would describe them as consistently perfect.

I really hope this place does well. It's by far one of the best restaurants in the city.
