Tried the Wine Thief...

We tried the Wine Thief in Mt. Airy and other than great service, I thought the food was not good. IMO, the chef was way too heavy handed with nutmeg that rendered the entrees we had almost difficult to eat. It also seemed that there was another spice that gave the food an unusual flavor as well but I think it was the nutmeg that overwhelmed us. We got the fried chicken and the Mahi Mahi, 2 dishes off the menu. I really wanted to like the place as I go by it all the time but I'm not sure I can convince myself to give it another try.

  1. So sorry you had a bad experience. I have not been there for dinner yet but we go for brunch all the time and its fabulous, they have a great burger and their eggs sophia (with a corn pudding) is so good. They also have great desserts - a bread pudding of the day that is always great (favorite is the chocolate peanut butter) and a super moise tres leches cake. Maybe you can give them another try for brunch and see how it goes, brunch is less of a commitment than dinner :)
