I took my colleagues there recently for a business dinner after a long day of travel and meetings. We were not disappointed at all. Hinterland was suggested by readers of Chow.com for it's locavore menu and craft beer and they nailed it on both accounts. it doesn't look like much on the outside, but the inside was a unique combination of metro and rustic. We got there early on a Monday (4:30) so the servers were quite attentive. Our business attire probably didn't hurt either. The server suggested tasting a variety of appetizers a la chef's choice, since there were 5 of us. All of the appetizers were good, but the pork belly and cheddar grits won first place in my book. I think everyone was very satisfied with their entree, but the guy who got the rib-eye I think was the happiest. I ordered the pork tenderloin, which I could only qualify as average. I don't order pork much and was a little let down. Three others ordered fish dishes and were happy. I was surprised by fish entrees like wahoo and marlin being available in the Midwest so early in the season. I would have liked to take more time to enjoy more of their beers, but as I was driving, I could only try an IPA and a nitrogen draught. Both were good, but the IPA clearly was superior. If I were paying out of pocket, I would be more conscious about the costs, but since this was a business dinner I paid little attention. The prices were definitely more like "big city" prices than most places in GB I think. All entrees were above $30. Our tab was probably over $300 for 5 diners.
