To those of you who know us, thank you for being a part of our success. To those of you who are new to The Back Abbey, welcome. To those of you who have been here since the beginning, well you know who you are. This website is the new "cyber" home for our little project, and serves as our way of communicating to our regulars and new patrons alike about what is new, different, and the same about The Back Abbey.
This place is a hidden treasure! We went there last night and enjoyed three great european beers, the tip sandwich, crab cakes and fritas. It was all amazing! The sandwich was my favorite because the meat was very tender and juicy. We took our 14 month old daughter here and they were also very kid-friendly. We also had the dessert that the server described as little bites of heaven...and it was! This is a must try for those in the Claremont area!
The Back Abbey is a quaint little pub-type restaurant that has the best beers on tap, and gourmet food to boot! Here are my faves:
The Back Abbey burger is quite a surprise --- the beef is seasoned so perfectly, just enough to bring out the flavor of the meat, and the salad that accompanies it is drizzled in this red wine vinaigrette that is mildly sweet but has just a tiny kick.
They also have excellent pomme frites fried in duck fat, accompanied by 3 different dipping sauces. Very decadent.
The mussels steamed in lemon and butter is a dish that you must try as well. It is a good way to initiate the timid eater who is very finicky and picky when it comes to seafood.
There's not much space to move around, but that's just as well. You would do yourself a favor by talking to the other folks at neighboring tables...everyone who comes in is a regular and has an interesting story to tell, for sure.
