A "wine bar" wouldn't be my first choice for my evening dinner since I do not drink alcohol, but a friend took a small party of us here to celebrate out belated birthdays, and I have to say.....I can't wait to go back!
Everyone at the table was satisfied with their cocktails, especially the sangria, and we all enjoyed sharing several appetizers.
We had crab cakes, corn bread and a ham and apple flatbread.....delish! I would order each of them again.
My entree was a Salmon in curry with polenta, very hot and spicy and a small, but adequate portion because of its richness. One had pork chop, another cod, and another the risotto and roasted vegetables, and we all loved our meals and felt they were small but, again, very rich and just enough.The quality of the food made it an ample meal.
I would have liked a more traditional dessert, but the carrot cake, which was nothing like carrot cake as we know it, was tasty, as was the berries and cheese; very, very rich and a very unique taste!
What I am the most excited about is that Chef Michael shops daily for fresh veggies and most everything else on the menu. He personally came to our table, as did the owner, to make sure all was good and we were all satisfied with our meals. They informed us that the menu changes seasonally from top to bottom...pretty interesting. I've already decided I will check their website to make sure there is something I would love to try in a month or so...can't wait.
Our wonderful waitress told us they have outside dining when weather permits, and also they have live entertainment but not, it seems, on a regular basis. I think they are trying to see what will work being there are many, many good restaurants in this busy little town of Elmhurst.
This place is decorated very interestingly, is spotlessly clean, and is cozy. Perfect for a glass of wine, a little cheese, an appetizer or two, and some good conversation....very intimate, yet, very comfortable for a group of friends. I really liked it, and will look forward to trying it again...hope you do too!
