My wife and I heard about this little place on Belmont (in the Museum District) that had just opened and we gave it a shot. They say they take reservations, but as it turns out - only at 5:00 - everything else is "first come"...the barkeep told me to call at 7:00 and he would give me the lay of the land - and to come on down. That's cool!
Called at 6:45 - he said the first tables were turning and to come on down and wait at the bar...we did. We got there and the bar was full (fine)...and tables had not turned yet...and people were rolling in. Luckily we just so happened to be the first few rolling in - and were in line for the 5 - 6 tables (NOTE: Belmont is SMALL!)
We waited about 30 minutes, but that was okay. Belmont has a "mixologist" on staff - and they mix all of their own soda/seltzers. The tonic (with my favorit Vodka) was incredible. with a chunk of ice taken off of a block to ice it down, it was a nice surprise.
Once seated...(we must have seen approx. 10 couples walk in and leave over the course of dinner due to space) we focused on the chalkboard menu. I had a squash ravioli app and my wife had a nice arugula salad. Both were very light and refreshing.
For entrees, my wife had a roast chicken in a wonderful lemon sauce. I had a glazed "bone in" pork chop - which I debated, but when it came out - it too was wonderful. My only complaint of Belmont Food Shop is that it had no "Steak" on the menu and was heavy seafood. While no complaints with seafood, I didn't feel like seafood that nigth and a steak would have been a nice "staple". Maybe they sol out - just don't know?
A must try - but if you like to "get in and get out" - you might not like Belmont Food Shop!
