What's in a name?
The Ordinarie [ ôrdnˌerē ] is not Ordinary [ ôrdnˌerē ]
1600's spelling to designate a tavern
The terms Ordinarie, Tavern and Inn remained synonymous throughout most of the eighteenth century; these institutions were licensed to provide entertainment “for all persons” including “Strangers and their horses.” While your horse may not be welcome, everyone else is- family, friends and strangers alike.
The historical name embodies our mission: paying homage to American drinking culture, harkening back to the 17th-18th century tavern experience, providing unparalleled hospitality, classic cocktails, beer, wine and spirits; featuring revived American comfort food in a modern, yet historically timeless bar.
