The Royal American has been one of our favorite bars for a long time now. Some of our best memories have been at concerts at the dive right next to the train tracks. But Royal has is now not only a great bar, it’s a pretty solid restaurant too. In fact, they have a new menu with quality eats that belie the dive bar rep — from daily specials like a fresh chicken shawarma salad to menu staples like the crazy good dry-rub magic wings (not too spicy, but with a subtle sweet kick). Sounds like just what we’d like with Royal’s Rum Punch. —Mary Scott Hardaway (Dish, Summer 2018)
