FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are you called THE TASTY?
It's the best adjective to describe what we do.
Do you take reservations?
At The Tasty we operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. We do this for a few reasons. Our intention in opening The Tasty was to provide a neighborhood restaurant where people could dine with us on any given day/evening, without having to "book a table" in advance.
How does 'the list' work?
Our dining room opens at 5pm. Should there be a wait, we will take names to form a guest list, that we will use throughout the night to seat the restaurant. A full menu is also available at our bar and "at the window" (where there is a surprising little view of the harbor!).
As a reminder, we are a small venue, with 40 seats only.
You walk in the door, and one of two things happen:
1. You may be seated immediately if your entire party is present and we have an available table
2. We add your name and phone number to our wait list for the evening. Our host will provide you with an estimated time range for your seating. Once we have your contact information, you are welcome to grab a drink at our bar or to leave; we'll call when your seats are available later in the evening.
Once we open for the evening, we take names in the order of arrival. Only one person needs to be present in order to be added to the list. We do not take any names over the phone for our wait list. In order to be seated, the whole party must be complete and present.
As a reminder - we are a small restaurant and only have a finite number of tables; therefore wait times tend to escalate rather quickly.
How do you come up with so many original menu recipes?
We think about food ALL day. We are very hungry.
Do you offer vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free menu options?
Many of our menu items are made to order, with little or no prep. We have fresh vegetables, grains, legumes, and other ingredients on hand that allow us to get creative and ensure that no-one leaves hungry. With a little dialogue, we're confident that you'll enjoy a 'Tasty' meal, no matter what your dietary limitations.
What's the difference between pastrami and corned beef?
It's in the final preparation. They are the exact same cut and both are usually cured the same way. Corned beef is boiled, while pastrami is rubbed and smoked.
