If your goal is casual and you love cocktails, this place is for you.
The bartender is incredible and they even lured this wine girl into having a cocktail (in part because the wine are offerings are so limited).
My friend gave the server two items that she wanted in her drink and the instructions to "make something fun with them." They added lavender essence and two other ingredients to make a one of a kind drink.
I choose the "Fallspice" which delivered the earthiness of the season along with a little fiery kick on a chilly night.
Beyond the drinks, the menu can be a challenge: We ordered some small plates to share.
And why is it, when you make it clear that you are sharing, that restaurants do not provide serving utensils?
We choose the mussels, the salt cod, and the braised oxtail.
The mussels (and I am VERY picky with mussels) were excellent. The broth mandated more bread in order to not leave any behind.
The salt cod - terrible, yes, terrible. In fact,it was taken off the check. Too Salty (even for salt cod) and bland.
Braised oxtail - redemption after the salt cod - so good that we ordered another.
Finally, a downside that the dessert offerings are an afterthought - none sounded good.
Which is a shame that they can't tap the pastry chef of their sister restaurant next door.
Or, is it a ploy to get you out faster because the small dark space is great for drinking and not intended for lingering diners???? Only Gerard will know.
