The old Rose & Crown: safe domestic drafts, standard sandwiches, iconic. Veteran beach chef Jay Caputo’s new Rose & Crown: expanded selection of craft brews, delicious gastropub fare, a welcome resurrection. Now in the Hotel Rodney, the reborn pub offers short rib sliders, the best shepherd’s pie you’ll ever taste (owing to the duck confit) and a bacon burger with the bacon ground into the beef. Heartier fare includes pork chops with potatoes gratinée, creamed spinach and onion rings. Heavenly fare includes the five-onion soup. Welcome back, R&C.
