Inside, it has the same “look” as quite a few places in town. Big, grandiose, lots of cherry-colored wood and wine everywhere.
We were seated at a booth very near their somewhat open kitchen. I love an open kitchen – they also have a Chef’s Table – which is something I have ALWAYS wanted to try. (hint hint husband – since I have a monumental birthday this year)
Then I went for the Chile Relleno – I think I must have been hallucinating because somehow I missed the Goat Cheese Ravioli (how the hell?)! We had been talking about chile rellenos at work so I thought I should try one.
Oddly enough – this was not as spicy as the flatbread even though spicy is in the name. This was good and I thought the chicken was a unique stuffing for it. I don’t know that I would order it again though. It was fine – just not outstanding (and not enough goat cheese).
Then dessert – they have an option for every pallette – fruit, pecan pie, key lime, chocolate, etc… and only $2.50!
I went for the German Chocolate – and it was delicious! This shot glass of goodness was perfect! I didn’t need another bite (okay – I wanted more – but didn’t NEED more). The cake was moist – it had that awesome GC frosting and there was just the right amount of coconut. I loved it!
Lastly, the bar is very pretty and they had live music. We were on the opposite side of the restaurant but could still hear the music just enough – it was nice.
Why Should You Go? It’s pretty, it’s nice and the food is really good! While I wasn’t amazed & astounded by everything – I definitely REALLY liked the food enough that I want to go back. That’s a pretty big statement – I have this burning desire to try so many places – it’s rare I go back to a “special occasion” place. This is worth the trip – I think moreso than it’s sister restaurant Yard House (unless you’re going for the beer instead of the food).
And now it’s your turn! That’s right – they gave me a $52 gift card for one of you!
