Restaurant vets the Logue family have resurected this old shot and beer joint into a thankfully not-too-slick or trendy small restaurant and bar. Food works for a good dinner, just shared bar snacks, or sandwiches. Partner had blackened sea scallops on Friday, were so expertly cooked we went back for the same boutiful sea scallop plate the next night, prepared differently. I had a steak frite platter with a flavorable strip sprinked with bleu cheese, a sizeable ceasar salad , crispy onions and tasty fries. Second nite I had the ribeye special.....great flavor.....come with a mound of fried onions, red parsley potatoes and asparagus. Tried and liked the banana pepper dip, polenta fries, and the veggie gratin (light sauce). Nice complimentary relish tray....hummus with flatbread crisps, raw & picked vegs, spiced pecans, olives.....really nice. Only negative was the overly breaded goat cheese on the otherwise fine beet salad. House made desserts noteworthy as well......not breaking any culinary frontiers.....but good apple cobbler, tiramisu, lemon pie. Even the ice cream is good quality with house made hot fudge....mmmmm. Limited wine list...some good choices, some could use improvement. There,s a list of special cocktails....we tried the phoenix bloody mary.....to signify this spots "phoenix rising"...it comes flaming with 151 rum....not my favorite, but shows the creativity here. Limited booze selection at this point. Service is very professional.....owner and staff are attentive and friendly. Most welcome I,ve felt in a restaurant in a long time. Easy parking on street ot large lot next door. Large patio looks inviting.....should be great in the nice weather. Only been open a couple of weeks......I,m sure there are great things to comr.
Welcome addition to the exploding culinary scene in Black Rock
