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.
