It’s nice to have an independently owned restaurant at the N/E cross-roads of Shea and Tatum. Not to mention a chef who has earned his marks under the tutelage of some of the valley’s finest. My first opinion is usually based on the wine list, of ¬†which I ordered a Merlot-yes Merlot, and was extremely satisfied. The price was reasonable too at $8, and next time, I just might go ahead and trust the $5 special they are offering. I have to be honest, the environment was pleasant right off the bat, and I am sure that the few tables out front will be hard to get during spring and fall. The lunch I had was just okay, there really wasn’t enough meat on the short-rib sliders to justify the use of the tasty bun, and I prefer a little more kick to the horseradish sauce-why else eat it? The chocolate mousse with pear topping dessert was to die for. Did I really have to share it? It was delicious! So, for a nice place to sip wine and ¬†devour dessert I’ll go back. My verdict is still not out on the food, so I’ll be happy to give it another try and let you know.
