soooooo we really wanted to go to Animal and although I tried to get a reservation, after 3 calls, no one ever called back so on a whim we decided to try Son of a Gun (same owner). Despite winging it, we were seated in 10 minutes at the bar. The bar only seats 5 and the bartender was super friendly and the service was good. Not so good was the 3 people who stood next to us trying to drink and eat appetizers on literally 1 foot of bar space.
Cucumber salad: different and refreshing with so many types of cucumbers that I had never tried before, the crispy shallots were a nice addition to the dish.
Chicken Sandwich: somewhere we heard that it was the best ever. Well, it was tasty...best ever....not really. The bun is soaked in butter then toasted and the slaw was nice. Not much chicken but a lot of breading.
Fries: really good, best thing we had
Shrimp Toast: soaked in oil and so much mayo that when I tried to cut into it, the mayo spooged out the sides. I had the scrape if off, not appetizing. The oily taste overwhelmed any shrimp flavor. Not so great.
Maybe sitting at a table would have been better? Not sure
Will I go back? prob not
Will I try Animal? yes, but I will only make one call.....
