Notice the crowd is a little older here...I would guess 30-55 year olds...
This is my wonderful friend, Elnaz (I call her Naz) who I met four years ago at MTV. She's now an Account Manager at IFC/Sundance Channel. Amazingly accomplished for her age. She's not only one of the sweetest people I know, she's also a powerhouse.
I liked how you could see back into the kitchen. Made me feel like I was watching Top Chef.
Menu. Notice a few choices but a good number of things people would actually eat.
We started off with the heirloom tomato salad - I like tomatoes but with nuts? The nut taste was a little too overwhelming. Didn't get it.
I ordered the "special" which was a cod dish with spinach on the side. Cod was a little dry, sauce was pleasant but overall the dish was nothing to write home about.
Now Naz had this veggie burger - brown rice, mushrooms, almonds and melted jack..now that thing kicked ass. She gave me a nibble and the whole time I was thinking. Damn it. Wrong choice. Naz said "this is the best veggie burger I have ever had." Now, no joke here. This girl is hard core vegetarian (for an ungodly number of years...so better believe it). Plus I'm a meat eating freak and I loved it too!
For dessert we had this blueberry cheesecake which was more like cool whip on top of a graham crumble cake. Blah.
Now quickly, just finishing up the tour of the place. I liked there were books used as decoration in this restaurant.
But the bathroom? 4 stalls - man/woman/man/woman - with 2 sinks on the outside. Now call me old fashioned but I don't like washing my hands next to dudes!
Overall? The place was really crowded, we waited at the bar for about 30 minutes. They don't take reservations so you're pretty much stuck waiting. Also, they don't seat more than 4 to a table so large parties, go elsewhere. Saving grace was that veggie burger...
