In a somewhat dowdy shopping center, we stopped in the Roadhouse Cafe before a performance at the Mann Arts Center, for cocktails and an appetizer. Much, much to our surprise, the cafe was crowded at the bar, but we were given seats at the piano. 1/2 price well cocktails were good and 1/2 price appetizers wowed us. Delicious antipasto with bread and garlic, chicken quesadilla with jack cheese, goat cheese, crab cakes, scallops wrapped in bacon, and Kobe beef carpaccio were enjoyed by all. But I had a real winner: linguine pesto pine nuts, roasted peppers, basil peso with a touch of cream, topped with goat cheese…….sheer delight.
Unfortunately, we could not stay for the jazz entertainment as we had show tickets, but when we return, and we surely will, we will stay for the music.
