Our Bartender, Jake!  He was super fun and made great Craft Cocktails.  The Bartenders seemed to really enjoy their jobs which makes for a great experience!

A glimpse of the Bar and Restaurant from where we were sitting.  Beautiful and quaint restaurant.  Eclectic and comfortable, not very big on the inside which lends to its appeal.

My beautiful dinner guests.  Jesse and Amber.  They brought me to this place, one of their local favorites.  You can see the brick in the background which gives you another idea of how quaint and special the decor is.

Jesse said this was wonderful! Mixed Green Salad with Golden Beet Goat Cheese Napoleon, Black Trumpets, Pine Nuts and  Ramp Vinaigrette.  Beautiful presentation too. Only $9. The Crusty Bread and Melty Butter they serve with the meal is divine.

IMG_0482Fabulous homemade Pasta! I was going to get the Grilled Lamb Chops (my favorite) but they were out (sad face) so I ordered the Duck Confit Bolognese – House Pappardelle, Wild Mushrooms and Parmesan Truffle $24.  Great depth of flavor, good layers, rich sauce, perfectly cooked Pappardelle.  Beautiful dish.

IMG_0487Amber’s favorite Burger.  She came here for it.  Half Pound Burger with Caramelized Onions, Cheddar Fondue and French Fries.  Excellent, I tried it!  I love the “French” fries, the very thin ones, “Frites”. They were thin, seasoned and crispy. Yum!

Another shot of the fabulous “Frites”.  Loved the Pepper and Salt Seasoning and the Aioli Dipping Sauce.

Great Place and I would go back.  Check out their website for more info.

Happy Eating!
