A Little Bit About a Lot of Things

A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

IMG_9557We spent a Tuesday night celebrating one of my good friend’s (belated) birthday.

IMG_9552The restaurant was fairly empty for most of our meal.

IMG_9547To start you off, they bring you a popover in a measuring cup. Love the playful presentation.

IMG_9548The waiter reads us the specials for the night and proceeds to tell us that all the meals are made to order (I hope so….) and they take 35 minutes to make, so we should order apps. We get the calamari ($12) with shishito peppers, fried pickles and spicy marinara. There were literally 3 pieces of calamari and the rest were pickles and peppers. Disappointed.

IMG_9549I had the wild mushroom cavatelli ($26) with forest mushrooms, ricotta cavatelli, egg, arugula and parmesan cheese. A little bit on the salty side, but over all delicious.

IMG_9550The rib eye roll ($29) came with seasonal greens and the waiter scooped out fries from a big bowl onto our plate.

IMG_9551The seared scallops were also delicious ($32) with potato, house cured bacon, braised leeks and a “clam chowder” sauce. Lovely presentation.

IMG_9554For dessert we had the hazelnut tart ($12) – nicely plated but the ice cream was already melting quickly by the time we got the plate.

IMG_9555The creme brulee ($12).

IMG_9556The warm apple tart ($12) was tasty, but we wished there was a little more crust to it. Over all a decent meal – a little on the pricey side. That being said, we thought for this price point we should have been wowed, and left a little underwhelmed.
