Wood Tavern aspires to be the perfect little neighborhood bistro and, in a part of town that can afford entrées in the twenty-dollar-plus range, it works. The handsome storefront embraces the woodsy semiotics of masculine comfort the perfect setting for the food, which packs hunky flavors into dishes revealing solid technical chops. Wicked Good Seafood Stew is a sprawling, cioppino-like concoction with the salty wallop of linguiça, and the pan-roasted chicken is tasty enough to make you want to make this place a weekly habit.
