My wife and I ate here Saturday, May 17 after a matinee show of Cirque du Soleil. We had tried to get a reservation at the more highly touted Blue Stem next door, but they were closed for renovations so we made a reservation here instead. I think we did better by coming here! As per other reviews, the space is small but attractive. The staff is hustling all the time so although we never felt rushed, things moved along nicely. We arrived early and opted to eat at the bar rather than wait for a table--another good choice, since that meant we got more opportunity to chat with those around us and with Vic, the terrific bartender with the handlebar mustache. The cocktails are great (I highly recommend the "Uncle Vic") and the short wine list is thoughtfully chosen for both quality and value. The chalkboard menu included a few salads, a couple of appetizers, chicken and beef pot pies (of course), and chicken, pork, and seafood entree's. The entree's range in price from $12-$22. We shared the goat cheese salad--very nice with goat cheese medallions melted into house made crouton crusts. My wife had scallops and I had the pan roasted chicken with mashed potatoes, tender-crisp green beans, and plate full of jus. Both were great: simply prepared but perfectly cooked and full of flavor. We then shared an order of bread pudding; definitely save room for this as it's some of the best I've ever had.
Great upscale comfort food, reasonable prices, friendly staff--what's not to like? We'll definitely be back.
