Convivial hotspot Townsman features a menu focused on local New England fare. Guests eat at the crudo bar or in the modern-rustic dining room marked by red chairs. Changing dishes like deviled eggs with crispy hen skin, broiled snail toasts with foraged mushrooms and onion jam, or braised pork shank with pumpkin polenta fill the menu. Drink offerings include global wines (with bottles hailing from Lebanon to Washington), craft beers and ciders and house cocktails like the Cranberry Buck (gin, house ginger beer, thyme).
