Turkey. It was great the first time. It was still good the seventh time (i.e., the leftover turkey fondue).

But it’s time to play a new tune. It’s called red meat, and there’s a new place that knows that one backwards and forwards.

Say hello to Market Tavern, now open in Clarendon where you used to find Harry’s Tap Room. And you’re not here for poultry.

The place may feel familiar, but with a few new touches—floating wine bottle lamps here, a giant mural of a bull there.

You also now have some choices. For a blind date, you’ll want to camp out at the downstairs bar, where you can pull a high-top table up to the gas fireplace in the wall and get started on 26 drafts, cocktails like the Black Velvet Russian (Old Rasputin stout and prosecco) and burgers topped with marrow.

Or if you’re celebrating another success (we don’t mean the blind date), head for the upstairs chophouse, where you’ll help yourself to the bread-and-butter bar (three of each, like herb butter and honey butter). From there, it’s six cuts of steak, short-rib casserole with polenta and wine sauce, and 76 wines by the glass.

They come in bottles, too.
