Went there for a late lunch yesterday with my brother-in-law and was impressed before even entering the restaurant (which I'd never heard of before, being new in town). Looks like it was in an old converted house which had been made to look more rustic and cosy, and it certainly was.
Since it was about 4pm, there wasn't really a dinner or lunch crowd and the place was mostly empty. The dearth of customers didn't at all detract from the homey/comfortable vibes in the place and one got the distinct feeling that it was a gastropub and not only a place to go drinking (ie. could be either classy dining or rowdy drinking and both would suit the place just fine).
The menu was relatively sparse, which I never take to be either a good or a bad thing. Sometimes the smallest menus being forth the most artistic creations and the largest can seem like mass production.. aaaanyhow.
I ordered the smoked chicken club sandwich with triple cooked fries and my bro-in-law ordered the burger. He's glutarded (gluten intolerant) so asked to go either bun-less or lettuce wrapped.
Our drinks were refilled promptly and out waitress was really friendly
Given the vibe of the place I was expecting some decent food, but when it finally came out, my jaw just about dropped.. Exquisite presentation and I couldn't but wait to start stuffing my face like Honey Boo Boo at an all you can eat buffet.
The fries were almost better than the sandwich, probably the best fries I've had anywhere in a very long time if ever.. Reminded me of the fries one would get in Brussels, wrapped up in paper and served with ketchup and mayo.
The portion sizes were the perfect balance between Euro-style peckish and American stuff-your-face-till-you-choke gluttony, so we left feeling perfectly satisfied and with a surprisingly light tab to boot.
I totally recommend this place and will be going back often.. I hope they switch up their menu often though.
