Advice: Live events a few nights each week, call for details. Play area for kids.
Every once in awhile comes a restaurant that you may have missed which happened to be in your neighborhood for years. Although I don’t live in this neighborhood, I am guilty for not having visited until now. This is one of the places you are going to want to get too for cozy atmosphere, delish comfort food, great music and friendly service.
I tried a few of their creations, starting off with the delish Prawn Cake ($12) in a coconut curry with mango chutney, rather than the usual crab cake offering, they stepped their dish up and make it with prawns. The Chorizo and Guinness Jus Poutine ($13) was next, made with Kennebec potatoes, Guinness Demi jus, Aged white cheddar, Mozzarella, Spicy chorizo, Truffle oil, Herbs and so very good. I then had the outstanding Spicy Lamb Sausage Pizza ($14) topped with caramelized onion, goat cheese and mint pesto on a wholewheat rosemary and honey crust. Lastly I had a slice of their Chocolate Raspberry Cake to finish off this fine meal.
You’ll find a menu with a selection of pizzas which they are known for along with salads, paninis and more. On the drinks side of things, the cool bar is the perfect backdrop for that one of a kind cocktail you have been yearning for or that beer that goes so well with one of their pizzas.
