We had our first experience with Brown Dog Cafe last night . We were a bit surprised the menu as it is ultra gourmet ( By this I meant there were things like wild boar , quails eggs, rabbit,duck etc and a variety of "cuisine styles"- mediterranean, southwestern, etc) This is due to the restaurant being totally chef owned and operated by him and his family. The food was absolutely excellant in presentation and quality. I ate the scallop/mussel plate which was amazing and we shared the mediterranean appetizer. I think the only "down" part of the evening was the prices. A 4 oz glass of wine ran $9.00 and entrees were mostly in the $23- $35. range. So this for us would be a"special occasion" place. We have not tried lunch there but probably it is more moderate in price . Tip: Make a reservation.
