Just like at A Frame, the plates are mismatched. It reminded me of my own dinner parties, where we serve things out of random containers…
…both thrilled and horrified that this $13 White Fir cocktail came in a plastic deli container.
The Chef’s sense of humor is appreciated.
You can’t really make requests; you have to just trust that they know what they’re doing. Sam doesn’t like cilantro, so our server made a note of that.
It was really fun just calling out random items and seeing what arrived.
For those of you who saw the film Chef, you will appreciate this grilled cheese.
Other mains included a schnitzel and scallops, a side of fries…
…and a pretty traditional Cobb.
Reviews for this place have been mixed – I admit that some of the dishes (like the salad, above and the dessert – Meringue with Rhubarb and Lemon Anglaise – below) were just okay.
But the veggie dishes were truly phenomenal, as were the ambiance and service. I loved that our waiter, Steve, brought out a packet of Coriander (Cilantro) Seeds for Sam to take home.
