We had quite a lot of fun dining at this restaurant! We were also in a great mood because we were celebrating, and the Curious Kumquat staff was a fun group to do it with!
Go to this restaurant if you are ready to try new and interesting food. Apparently the chef is really into growing/ raising his own food ingredients, and he sure is into creating new recipes. There were quite a lot of interesting things on the menu with conglomerations from various food groups. Main dishes included Lamb, duck, venison, rabbit, Pea fitters, smoked root salad etc etc. in that particular evening and there was a so called “tasting menu”, which allowed you to taste several of the chef’s creations. I am probably not doing these dishes justice by naming them simply by these terms. It was all exotically prepared and you just had to ask the chef or the waitress, Leah for details! Leah is real fun! Actually they were all very jovial and we simply loved trying new food and being a bit crazy there.
Oh yes, there is quite a wine menu! I think it would be great to go with a big group so that you can try several different wines. There was also a great variety of beers. The drinks are not cheap. Nor is the food! If you do go with a group (or even just two) you will have to make a reservation because it is a very small restaurant with a limited number of tables.
I think if you are in Silver City you have to go to try the Curious Kumquat. And, don’t forget to kiss the Chef and the waitresses!
