The Donnelly Group: Brunch at the The New Oxford

We All have a list of brunch spots we’d like to try in town. I’m going to strongly suggest you add the Donnelly Group pubs, and The Tavern at the New Oxford in particular, to that list… pronto! I was recently invited to a tasting of the new brunch menu and I have to say, […]
