Back down on the 2nd floor is a bar that’s open for bands every now and again. They were gearing up for a Swing band this night. It’s also the overflow if you’re waiting for a table. Great lamp. I can totally picture my friend Rachel owning this!
We started out with the Dirty Hummus ($9) minus the melted cheese (still going strong!). This is hummus topped with olives, peppers and BBQ sauce. It’s good but the BBQ sauce was a bit overwhelming. Larry prefers straight-up hummus but we did enjoy it.
I always love the teenie tiny bottles of Diet Coke – although I could polish off 3 of them – no free refills. 🙁
Larry went for the Fresh Catch which for the day was Sole ($25ish). It’s topped with spinach, artichoke and a marsala beurre blanc. There was a side of rice and broccoli to go with it. I must say – it was a bit saucier than last time – but from now on – I’m just ordering this – it was delicious. So there’s the Official Food Hussy recommendation – just get the Fresh Catch – it’s amazing!
I went for one of the nightly specials which was Blackened Tuna ($25ish) with the same rice/broccoli. It had a pesto/butter kind of sauce on top that was really salty. I wasn’t a fan of the tuna – I like it more on the medium rare side whereas this was well-done. I will add too – the broccoli was delicious. I like broccoli anyway – but Larry even finished his – so it must have been good!
Why Should You Go? Well I’ve said before that I love this place! While I didn’t love my tuna – it’s still at the top of my list. Plus – if you go – be sure to check out the gallery upstairs. It’s a wonderful date spot – cozy and intimate are two key words to describe York St!
