Wanting to try all of the restaurants near Careytown, my girlfriend and I stopped by The Savory Grain the other night for a quick bite. We actually stopped first at the neighboring Pig and Pearl, which we have not tried, but the atmosphere that evening was a little too rambunctious for our mood so we tried out the Grain. We ordered martinis and were pleasantly surprised that the bar offers its own varieties of alcohol other than what one can get in other restaurants. I must admit I did finish dinner with a gin and tonic, with handmade tonic that was not my favorite.
Not being overly hungry, we split the jalapeno poppers appetizer and the sea scallops entree. Both were exceptional - however there were only four poppers and only five scallops. I am guessing we needed to order our own servings. Aside from that, the poppers wrapped in bacon had a nice hint of spiciness mixed with the coolness of the cheese based filling. The scallops were perfectly cooked and my girlfriend loved the broccolini served with it (I frankly am not a fan of many cooked vegetables).
The service was excellent and helpful, as this was our first experience. I would recommend that you try out the Grain and we will do so again. (By the way, we thought the name had something to do with bread. Instead it deals with beer - just ask them).
