We shared some happy hour apps- both bruschetta type things with Prosciutto- one with fig, another with peach, both with Arugula or some sort of other fancy-schmancy green stuff. Both VERY tasty.
We proceeded to an appetizer of grilled asparagus, herbed ricotta (I think) chees and a fantastic fried duck egg. Amazing.
She had a lemony-bright Troffi pasta dish- fresh and clean. I had the opposite- a rich short-rib ravioli with a very complex horseradish cream sauce.
We finished with a butterscotch pot de creme (they call it a pudding) that was equally spectacular.
She had a nice glass of red wine, I had a 24 oz can of anti-craft PBR.
We agree it was the (trumpet fanfair) The Best Meal Ever in Hillcrest (proper).
Walkable for us, we will return. But are unlikely to get a seat.
Service personable efficient and kind. Knowlegeable, too.
So short ribs (at least as an ingredient) are off the "do not fly" list"?
Sounds great, it was already on my list. Now we will walk over after the next Landmark movie date night. Do they take rezzies?
I don't really get the "anti-craft beer" thing, but for those who feel like they're sticking it to whomever by filling their belly with low-grade swill, here's an interesting story about the owners of PBR and their marketing efforts (the fact-averse may not want to click through):
