Mood: an eye for flair… artsy-esque decor… down right good food
Tastes Like: whatever kind of mood you’re in for, you can find it here. Burgers, steak, lamb and seafood… all wonderful options… I love the burger here, served over harissa aioli sauce and truffled brioche bun. It’s made from organic meat and the fries, though on the thick side, are crispy. If you love lamb, try the Australian lamb chops here. Seared perfectly on the medium rare side, served with a side of polenta and cherry tomatoes. Magnificent! My friends have tried the snapper here and told me it was wonderful. It looked wonderful and let’s face it, who doesn’t like corn? My least favorite was the Chilean Sea Bass..mainly because of the way it was prepared. It was steamed, versus seared and broiled. It didn’t have a nice crust on top… fish was fresh, however, I wish it was just prepared a little differently. I would probably try the snapper or the lobster ravioli next.
Must Haves: Burger
Stay Away: Chilean Sea Bass
Ambiance: Funky, vibrant portraits and art galore, a big white dollhouse in the back restaurant that serves as a window pane to the kitchen. Freaky yes, but unique.
Service: We have become regulars so they know us and we are always treated well
Rating: 5 stars
Caveat: The menu is very limited, but offerings are wonderful, I promise.
