Lavergne’s Tavern opened in June, 2016 at the corner of Windsor and East Avenues in the old Garv’s Inn location, a staple in Berwyn since the ’60s. The tin ceiling and hardwood floors are restored, and the storied Garv’s Inn bar is rebuilt from scratch using reclaimed black walnut. A combination of high-top bar seating and lower tables help keep the atmosphere friendly to both families and those looking to join a date or friends for a night out.Led by Executive Chef, Mark Downing, the menu is accessible but elevated. Items are priced from $6-$9 for shareable appetizers to entrées at around $14-$16. The Italian Beef Egg Roll, filled with Italian beef, giardiniera, spicy queso, Monterey jack cheese, and au jus dipping sauce is, in one customer’s words, “life changing.”
Though the dining room is lit low and shows the simple elegance of white tablecloths, there’s a certain home-style vibe to Mirabella Italian Cuisine & Bar that you’d have a hard time finding at other Chicago temples to red meat. The prices are somewhat more modest, too, and at Mirabella Italian Cuisine & Bar, you can enjoy some classic apps, a very good bowl of pasta, and a well-prepared steak, with wine, for less price and just as much enjoyment as you could expect at many downtown steak joints.
