Hundred Acres recs?

To the extent Hundred Acres gets mentioned on this board, it's usually in the brunch context. Can anyone recommend items off their dinner menu to try or avoid?

Thanks.

      I've had dinner there. It was good and pleasant but not memorable. The most memorable thing I got there was a terrific dessert - a bread pudding flambeed in, I believe, brandy, with dulce de leche ice cream or something very similar to that (when they ran out of that flavor, they used chocolate, which was also good but not magical). I also recommend having some of the cocktails on their drinks menu, but only if you can sit at the bar and tell the bartender you want them well-balanced and not very sweet.

        That is funny Pan because when I went I sat at the bar and had the best service from their bartender and a couple of really good G&T with Hendricks.

        Desidero for dinner I had the mushroom lasagna special and it was delicious!
        Might be tough to get though since it was a special not sure how often it is offered.

        Enjoy

          Supporting evidence. I got great cocktails at the bar, but when my requests for well-balanced, not very sweet cocktails were filtered through a waitress, the results weren't so good. Once I sent a cocktail back and remade it, though, it was OK.
