“Interesting impeccable grown-up food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2008

Had the special.... grilled swordfish over Thai black sticky rice (heavenly, had never had that rice before). Fresh ginger on the side, pesto on top, pineapple buerre blanc on the bottom, green beans with perfect color, texture and taste on the side. Started with two perfect soft, flavorful biscuits. All tastes worked together well. Dessert: dark chocolate creme brulee. Very dark chocolate, perfect textures. This was a real treat! Entrees are throughout the $20s, dessert was $8, and worth every penny.

“Delicious!!!! Great small plates!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2008

I love everything I have eaten at McEwen's! The small plates in the bar area are delicious---especially the shrimp and grits and mushroom crepes! Great downtown location!
