Fife ’n Drum continues, under family guidance, to deliver award winning cuisine, wine and service
Although owner Dolph Traymon died last year, his restaurant Fife ’n Drum continues under the care of daughter Audrey Traymon and granddaughter Elissa Potts, with the same high degree of service and quality of food that he established 44 years ago. It has garnered many awards, most recently the 2016 Award for Excellence from Wine Spectator. This Kent landmark features three dining settings: the casual, lunch-and-dinner David Armstrong Room; the formal Eric Sloane dining room; and the Glass Room, added in 2003 for private parties.
The original pub menu offers a variety of comfort foods, such as mac & cheese with bacon, apples, and smoked cheddar cheese; black-forest ham and Swiss; the pub burger with beef tenderloin, bacon, Cambozola blue cheese and caramelized shallot horseradish, and chicken pot pie.
Tempting dinner selections include pan-seared diver scallops, eggplant rollatini, lobster Newburg, and corn-flake crusted chicken. Specialties are prepared at tableside and include Caesar salad for two, filet mignon au poivre, and roast duck flambé. There is an extensive wine list with a wide range of prices and a dessert menu to satisfy the sweetest tooth.
Dolph Traymon was known for his piano skills. Roger Young has taken over the Steinway and is there every Thursday and Saturday at 6:30 pm.
