I was a fan of the lower floor of the old Magnum & Steins so last night my girlfriend and I tried out the lower floor of their newish place across the lane from the Duke of Duckworth. I must admit that Bernie's taste in decor didn't thrill me but we settled in with a martini and a Ceasar both excellent. The server was affable and we started with what turned out to be the best of three treats. The ribs and corn fritter were great. Tender ribs with a thick sauce together with corn fritters to mop up the sauce. Unfortunately it took twenty minutes to get the follow ups, popcorn chicken with a dry breaking which was tasty and a nice yogurt dip, and to massive pork meatballs on buns. The chicken itself was overdone and there was no way to get the meatball slider near your mouth when it was on the bun but aside from the delay it was a nice Monday night. The server was very good and we tipped accordingly. Too bad we were the only people in the place.
