We spent a Tuesday night celebrating one of my good friend’s (belated) birthday.
The restaurant was fairly empty for most of our meal.
To start you off, they bring you a popover in a measuring cup. Love the playful presentation.
The 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.
I 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.
The rib eye roll ($29) came with seasonal greens and the waiter scooped out fries from a big bowl onto our plate.
The seared scallops were also delicious ($32) with potato, house cured bacon, braised leeks and a “clam chowder” sauce. Lovely presentation.
For dessert we had the hazelnut tart ($12) – nicely plated but the ice cream was already melting quickly by the time we got the plate.
The creme brulee ($12).
The 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.
