Review Preview: Newstead Tower Public House

Were it not for the stark contrast between Newstead's beautifully rehabbed exterior (including the titular tower, which someone should adopt as the logo of the Grove's resurgence before I copyright the idea) and the generally shabby state of its surroundings, you might imagine it as a place where two or three generations of neighbors have met for a pint and a bite to eat.

This week I visit Newstead Tower Public House, the new gastropub from Anthony Devoti, the chef and owner of the bistro Five. Check back here tomorrow to see what I think.
