I just read a post by one of my favorite readers Skip. Skip and I grew up around the same neighborhood in North Trenton. There across the street from my parent’s house was the famous Top Road Tavern. The tavern were my mother ordered those delicious fish and chips for Friday night dinners that were made by that sweet Italian lady. A tavern that made great tomato pies comparable to the ones in the Burg. I was glad my sons were privileged to savor the taste of those pies covered in the various toppings offered. I myself strolled in the bar and enjoyed a beer or two with the Polish men who seemed to own certain stools and never uttered a word to you but you did not care you were drinking on holy ground.
Yes the TOP ROAD TAVERN has closed its doors and will be sorely missed in the Brunswick Avenue neighborhood. For me I have my memories of the food and drink enjoyed. Farewell Ye Old Tavern.
