Aged Rib Eyes are BACK!!!!

If you’re a meat eater, there are few meals as phenomenal as well-raised, well-marbled steak. That is, until you’ve had well-raised, well-marbled, dry-aged steak. Do you love a nice tender, flavorful steak? Treat yourself to a 22oz aged rib eye at Taylor's Tavern! Our rib eyes are aged in house by our very own Chef JD until they are perfectly ripe to be cut and served to you! The process changes beef by two means. Firstly, moisture is evaporated from the muscle. The resulting process of desiccation creates a greater concentration of beef flavor and taste. Secondly, the beef's natural enzymes break down the connective tissue in the muscle, which leads to more tender beef. In controlling the decomposition of the meat, you’re breaking down the collagen, which is what holds the muscle fibers together. Collagen is what can make a steak tough. After the dry-aging process the collagen is broken down and all you have is that protein sitting there and it’s very tender. So you have a tender steak and it has that dry aged flavor.

WELCOME TO TAYLORS TAVERN
Restaurant Story
   In 1866 a gentleman by the name of Rinaldo Taylor who was the editor of the Franklin Democrat, an early Greenfield newspaper, purchased the building; naming it the Taylor Block. Mr. Taylor had gone out to the California Gold Rush in 1849 hoping to strike it rich. Unsucessful, he returned home and ran the only millinery store in Greenfield. The building suffered 3 fires and rebuilt in 1885 with an additional floor & cornice.
    In 1921 W. L. Goodnow Co. of Keene New Hampshire purchased the building and Goodnows Department Store became a significant retail store. The basement floor, which now occupies Taylors, was the linens and domestic section. The unique cashing out tube (pheumatic) is something many people remember. 
   Mark S. Donoghue, former University of Massachusetts basketball player and local CPA, purchased the building in September 1982. Renovations were started and the building was quartered into 4 condominiums.
   Taylors Tavern opened its doors on September 11, 1983, taking its name from the building itself. The Tavern side was the origional restaurant and bar. In 1987 two things happeneed. A 4th floor was added to the building and Taylor's Dining Car Room became a reality. Richard Lea of Easthampton, handcrafted the beautiful wood work.
   We have been honored to be a part of Historic Downtown Greenfield for years and look forward to serving you for many more years to come!
                                                                                 Thank you, The Donoghue Family.
