We have ventured to the Niles Gourmet twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed our experiences. It is so refreshing to dine where you are not faced with the same menu choices as every other place around. Plus their menu is ever changing. Don’t expect fried mozzarella sticks, Buffalo wings or cheeseburgers.
Sandie (chef/owner) is a true foodie that is passionate about the quality of the ingredients. She focuses on local, organic and unique gourmet items which are becoming more and more foreign to the deep fried American fare at other restaurants.
Don’t go with a super size me mentality, remember…it’s gourmet, local, organic, personally prepared. Slow down and savor each bite. In a world where most restaurants are serving over processed, nutritionally deficient food, it is a refreshing change of pace to go out for a long slow evening of dining. We spent about 3 hours each time we were there and I would rank it as one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had.
Eric as our waiter/owner is a delight to “play” and banter with while dining. Our first time, we dined with 2 other tables of guests and enjoyed the intimacy of the place where you can also get to know your fellow diners. The second time was for our anniversary on a Wednesday night which we had the place to ourselves, which was equally as enjoyable.
As a fellow foodie, I have worked in many restaurants; dined in many more, as well as owned my own and I know what a true gem this is. In our world of fast food and junk food…Niles Gourmet is truly hidden treasure.
