As you enter through the (nearly unmarked) front door, you may experience momentary panic at how small the restaurant is. Take a breath and look to your right - there are more than just the few tables in that first room as the restaurant expands to a second room.
|Front room - its a bit tight but lots of big windows|
|Second room with more seating|
|Bar area - snag a seat and feel free to ask the bartender for a recommendation. He was awsome!|
|Chalkboard by the bar with the specials|
|One of our (many) cocktails...I can't tell you which one this was, but I can tell you it was good!|
|Fried Pickles! These came out quick. My belly thanks you for your promptness.|
|Burrata - once you start digging it its oh so soft and oozy...I can never resist Burrata|
|Beef Short Rib Tacos - excellent excellent excellent and quickly devoured|
|Scotch Egg - I loved the mayo aioli sauce served under the eggs! These were tasty, but nothing compares with the bad-ass Scotch Egg that I had at The Breslin.|
|Burger - Nice and juicy. And the bacon is a plus!|
|Duck Confit Mofongo - awsome presentation with the egg right on top!|
|Arctic Char - this dish took way too long to come out. I actually forgot we had this and was about to ask for our check when this was finally placed on our table...|
Overall, I loved the energy, bartender, and drinks! Food was fun to try as well. If you're in the neighborhood stop by and let me know what you think.
