Decor and service were both great. LOVE the pennied floor and the scalloped tile ceiling.
As for the food (brunch), the portabella mushroom sandwich was the stand alone winner. Absolutely delicious. Granted the arugula salad it comes with leaves much to be desired… For example, the fact that I even called it a “salad” is being VERY generous, as it’s really just a pile of arugula.
The octopus app was the next best thing. A solid good. Not amazing.
The chicken palliard was just okay, but it’s not like it’s ever an incredible dish or anything. Still, the dressing could’ve stood to be a little more lemony or something.
And last but not least, the bread pudding dessert, of which I consider myself a bit of a connoisseur (French for “snob”)- and thus, this fell very short. Didn’t even bother to finish it. Granted it’s not bad, but not exactly worth the calories either.
