Some people consider their drink secondary to their meal — but not Sam Glynn. He’s formed Statesman Tavern around equilibrium between drinks and dinner. In this case, dinner is the familiar: braised beef with tater tots, chicken and dumplings, shrimp and grits, alongside family-style fried chicken, steak and whole fish dinners served Tuesday through Thursday. Cocktails meander into the eclectic. There are new twists on the Negroni, Manhattan and Mule — but just as many new options (including a new tiki lounge on Thursdays) and a carefully chosen craft beer list with local options. Come parched, leave happy.
