Lunch at Gather--loved it!

DH and I had a really fine lunch at the D'Amico restaurant Gather that has taken the place of 2021 at the Walker. Started from their non-alcoholic cocktail list, appreciated on at tropical, stormy day. I had the Melon Ball and he had the Nojito--both creative and refreshing. We shared a watermelon salad--again, a perfect seasonal dish combining sweet with salty, sour, and hot notes. My slow cooked salmon with farro salad was delicious, but DH's locally sourced (Edward's?) ham on baguette with wild mushrooms, poblano pepper and fried egg on top rendered us speechless. Really helpful server who obviously loves working there. Beautiful room.

  1. I'm glad to hear a review. I'm a tour guide at the Walker but haven't had a chance to eat there yet. At least now, if someone asks, I can recommend the restaurant with confidence.

    1. I finally had lunch there 2 weeks ago. Dh and I went for our anniversary. I had the salmon and faro which was wonderful. The dressing on the faro was nice and citrusy. Dh had the short rib bahn mi. It came with homemade potato chips. He gave me one. He like his sandwich a lot and it was filling. Dessert was on the house. We chose the upside-down blueberry corn cake and it was a great combination of blueberries and cornmeal. Just sweet enough.

      After lunch, we toured the galleries!
