Recently we hung out with some friends for dinner in Northside and tried a couple of new places along the way.
They really know their stuff and I was shocked by how many people come in and get beer to go. They have nearly every kind in house refrigerated and on the shelf - so you can grab either and go. They asked what I wanted and I said, "Uh - you got any of that fruity stuff?" They did! I had a blueberry cider that I'd had at Rhinegeist recently on the Brew Bus and it was just as good this time around.
Northside Grange. The Grange is a local source for dog, cat and backyard poultry supplies as well as catering to the "urban farmer". It's a bit of a hippie store in my mind - but we stopped in and grabbed a couple of Zuke's dog treats for the pups. (The dogs loved them.)
Bistro Grace. We really wanted some place that wasn't too busy where we could sit outside and this seemed like a great option. They have a really nice patio in the back that was very peaceful. BG is in the former Honey spot if you're wondering where it is.
Larry was really hungry while we waited for our friends.
I always think of Modern Family when Cam made poutine for Mitch's dad and he looked at it and said, "I don't know what it is - but I'm not POUTINE it in my mouth." hahahaha - he missed out - it may look like a hot mess but it tastes delicious!
but it's not a Bahn Mi. If you're looking for that - head to Le's.
There's also a slight issue with their photo on their site (above) vs. the actual - most notably the inside-out bread. Not sure that would have helped the sandwich at all - but just something to note.
Why Should You Go? Well - we didn't love our meals. Larry and I thought it was okay - but Matt & Leah weren't too happy. Also - our bill was $70+ - which is a LOT for a casual double date. We had alternatively thought about going to Mazunte (still haven't been) and I have to think it would have been better and cheaper. The patio is also nice. I'd say go for beer & poutine and call it a night.
