Sports bar and restaurant with modern, upscale vibe. The wrap-around wooden bar, decked with sports decor and screens, is flanked by open-air patios showing off stylish grey siding and new outdoor heaters for fall.
In 2015, Tommy Bonifiglio opened the first Tommy’s Tavern + Tap in Sea Bright. In July, the family-owned operation debuted Bridgewater, its seventh location.
Bar favorites with nuances. On the extensive menu, small plates range from drunken clams to wings roasted in the coal-burning brick oven. Tommy’s may be one of the few restaurants to feature both brick-oven pizza and a sushi bar. Entrées include creamy penne pasta, juicy burgers, well-appointed salads and thick sandwiches. Sushi comes in classic rolls as well as pieces, and poke bowls are light and fresh. Among pizzas, consider the Bella Andrea—a complex pie with sweet Italian sausage, coal-fired onions, mozzarella, Gorgonzola and fresh tomato, all drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil. Finish with a slice of chocolate lava cake, served hot, or the decadent bread pudding.
Happy hour runs every weekday, 3–6 pm. Daily specials after 4 pm include half-price specialty-cocktail Mondays and half-price wine-list Tuesdays. Kitchen stays open until 10 pm, Friday and Saturday until 11.
