Nothing says al fresco dining more than a delicious meal on Black Powder Tavern’s recently revamped patio. The outdoor makeover includes expanded seating and more tables, updated furniture and red umbrellas.

The busy culinary team at Black Powder Tavern recently added a light and flavorful salad to their already delicious seasonal menu. This new strawberry balsamic salad mixes crisp field greens, fresh strawberries, juicy tomatoes and crunchy candied walnuts. The salad is topped with house-made balsamic vinaigrette and crumbles of gorgonzola cheese. It’s perfect for pairing with a dry summer rosé wine.
- Speaking of rosé, the restaurant has also enhanced its summer wine list with a few pops of pink: Day Owl rosé (a fresh watermelon and cantaloupe sip from California) and Vanderpump rosé (delicate red currant, hints of pepper and sweet citrus from France). The team has also added some new light and jammy red zinfandels and a variety of clean and tart sauvignon blancs, as well.
