Hundred Acres....way tasty.

Early dinner at Hundred Acres tonight.
I'm not the kind of guy to write 5 paragraphs about a 3-course meal but I will say the following:
Our apps: Zucchini flowers with crab and corn relish served on big basil leaves....deeelish.
Trio of tea sandwiches...well done, tasty, she loved them.
Mid-course salad of morels and a mixed-milk cheese....a treat of mixed textures and flavors.
My sirloin steak with pesto and a sort of vegetable Napoleon was perfect. I'll be back for that. Finally someone knows what medium-rare means.
I kept reaching across the table to steal slices of her rabbit, wrapped with bacon, and fingerling potatoes, because I have an insatiable appetite when the good stuff is around...and the dish's clean, fresh flavors went well with her rosé and my nebbiolo in good and different ways.
Good vibe/music/crowd.

Highly recommend.

    Thanks for your review. For some reason, I'm interested in this place although I've been disappointed by the owners' other restaurants, Five Points and Cookshop (except for brunch). It's on my list.

      yeah, they seem to be best for brunch only.
