This was a pleasant experience from the time we walked into the doors. It’s an interesting space, a former bank, so there is seating in the vault and in the board room. This space was under water in the flood of 2008 but has been very nicely restored.
We like to chat up the bartender when going to a new place. They can tell you the best (and if you push, the worst) from the menu. Mickey was quite nice, but they had a big party in a private room who apparently all ordered cocktails needing to be mixed, shaken and strained into glasses. We had an appetizer at the bar, bruschette (that’s the plural of bruschetta) with date jam, *****
We went to our table. Our server, Brandon, was very attentive. I ordered a beet salad (because my husband doesn’t like them and I do, so I often order them when eating out and the preparation looks good). Hubby got ****. Both made us happy. For the main course, I had the veal tenderloin. I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t think I’ve ever had veal tenderloin. It came with *** and was a real treat. Hubby had ***. When we were almost finished with our first course, the server came to apologize that the big party had ordered, and our main course might be a little delayed. YAY. We hate to be rushed when we’re out for dinner, especially out of town when we have only a hotel room to look forward to.
This was, all in all, a very agreeable dinner in all aspects. Surprising that it’s only been open for a couple of months, and that the chef was a home town guy that had been around a lot after his culinary school training.
Go. You’ll love it.
