Mood: unique humble eats.. that look flawless and almost effortless …
Tastes Like: great food accented European (French/Italian) with a slight Mediterranean flare that is sure to be connected with their wood fired oven. wood fired ovens make everything taste that much better. Although the menu is tiny, I am positively certain that my choices were straight As. I couldn’t be happier. The roasted sweetbreads was one of the best that I ever had and it was my first time having it “roasted” versus the usual pan seared. It gave it an extra crisp … and longing me for more. The hake and shellfish bouillabaise was wonderful. Light, smoky, aromatic, full of saffron, fennel and onion flavors, but not too salty… the perfect combo for me in what I’m looking for in a bouillabaise broth.
Must Haves: Roasted Sweetbreads… Hake & Shellfish bouillabaise … for brunch, consider trying one of the baked eggs.. my favorite Alsatian
Stay Away: N/A
Ambiance: back garden for a nice outdoors feel… wooden decor, cork decorum, give a rustic, cozy feeling.
Service: i experienced that dinner service was really slow…however, they were very nice and laid back. for brunch, once we expedited our request (because we were in a hurry) it was probably the fastest brunch I ever had.
