My wife and I visited here twice in the past week. The first time, because of flight delays we needed to keep pushing back our reservation. Nick, the owner, was most accommodating. When we entered, he immediately knew who we were, greeted us by name and told us to relax and leave rest to him. What an awesome host! We started off with a delicious kale salad. My wife and I had two expertly prepared fish entrees. The first was a pan roasted salmon on a mint pesto with chickpeas and kale that was perfectly cooked. The other was fresh cod on a subtle broth with chorizo, tomatoes and white beans. Great flavor, not overly spicy. The wait staff must take their cues from Nick because they made us feel welcome, without being overly intrusive.
On our second visit, Connie was out waitress. She was just as nice. The bar makes a great old-fashioned. Something that is hard to find. We started the meal with these delicious chickpea lentil fritters, that were light and flavorful, served with radish and sliced celery. I never knew of a dish where raw thin sliced celery works, but it sure did in this one.
We followed those with two beef dishes. Mine was an incredibly tender beef short rib, my wife had a sirloin steak with port wine. Both were amazing.
It is difficult to find a good fish place, or a good steak place. We found both here at Avenue N.
Connie recommended the fig-chocolate bread pudding for a finish. Even with the vanilla ice cream on top, it was not overly sweet. A perfect ending.
The dining room was busy, but we were not crowded in. I had a seat facing inward and saw the blazing speed in which food was coming out of the kitchen.The burgers and pizza looked awesome. Maybe next visit Outdoor seating is available also. Great food, Great service, Priced well.
We plan on making this place a weekly visit.
