Nook - what to order?

Finally going to Nook tonight around 8pm (will there be a short or long wait do you think?).

Never been - what are your favorite items on the menu? I know some of you like all of it, but try your best to narrow it down to a few for me :) Any "must-order" items?

  1. the short ribs are divine!

    1. 2nd the ribs. The pork chop is also pretty darn good. So is the mac and cheese. They also carry Cooper's Ale.

        Thanks guys, are the ribs messy?

        1. re: LisaStitch

          not at all....unless a piece drops off the fork. =)

            Definitely not. Well braised as short ribs should be, easily cut with knife and fork but still have a meaty chew to them.

            Oh, 8 p.m. you might have a 30-45 minute wait. Its a small place. We don't mind sitting at the 5 person bar to get seated quickly.

        2. As a whole I find the food good, not great. I do enjoy the savoury bread pudding.

          1. Mac 'n Cheese and the Nook Burger

              the bun on the burger is a buzz kill. so tough and chewy. ruins a fine patty.

              1. re: blackbookali

                I agree completely. A bun away from being a top notch burger.

            2. pan-roasted mussels to start, tilapia and pork chop for entrees...
