This restaurant came highly recommended by lots of locals and it was well worth the visit and a fun place to celebrate my guest's birthday. An eclectic combination of gourmet, fresh fare, mostly of eastern/asian/himalayan/greek fare (how's that for a combo) served in a cozy, tasteful bohemian atmosphere with fair and reasonable prices. It bills itself as 'a global taste' and that is how they designed the menu. Small portions so that you are meant to sample various dishes, appetizer style. That allows for ability to try different dishes, combinations and we appreciaet the seasonal rotations of the menu.
Were disappointed in an inaccurately described Pain Perdu the way it was made--not a typical Pain Perdu : two small pieces of bread dryly flanking the separate tiny scoop of cream sitting atop of plate of sauce with large chunks of ginger. The flavors didn't mingle and couldn't the way it was presented,, the bread too dry and the ginger chunks needed to be blended into the sauce or eliminated.
The BEET APPETIZER was scrumptious, however, and something unique for which I could easily feel myself craving from time to time).
Their popular HOT CHEESE CRAB DIP was most decadent and delicious.
The MOROCCAN GNOCCHI was a most satisfying, perfectly prepared and unexpected combination of Morroccan spices with Italian gnocchi and most appropriate for winter evening.
The lamb dish was eh, okay.
The wine list is surprisingly versatile for such a restaurant and most reasonably priced, including an organic selection or two.
The service was a bit slow getting started, but caring and we were in no hurry. All staff were warm , friendly and welcoming.
In fact, thanks and kudos must go to this favorite of Missoulians located on the 'hip strip', as they surprised us with the classy touch of comping the dessert for my birthday guest.
Dinner for two with 2 beverages (incl 1 organic wine): $41 plus tip.
There were people of all ages and compositions here (families, couples, dates, friends)
It is definitely a place to which we will return when in Missoula!
