The Abbey offers an upscale twist on bar bites like deviled eggs, flatbread pizza, and burgers, as well as more elaborate dishes like roasted cod, coq-au-vin, and bison bolognese.It’s a lot like a smaller, cheaper version of another restaurant down the block, where the chef and manager used to work. But except for lacking dessert, it’s worth beating or outwaiting the crowd to get at peppery codfish cakes, a fine statler chicken breast, and a better roast cod.
