A relatively large space that was packed with people and turned tables as soon as they opened. There is no tasting menu but they are known for their beef and fish both of which are brought out on trays at the beginning of the meal for you to choose from. The beef seemed to be getting brought out a lot more often than the fish on our visit. The steaks are for 2 and served with a salad.
The pastas are house made and offered in appetizer or entree sized portions. We split an entree one for our first course and it was a perfect amount. They also offered a nightly special dessert which we enjoyed. Everyone starts with an assortment of breads and butter. I liked the “hollow bread stick” – thin, crispy and tasty. The nuts were fairly spicy. Then is the amuse which was a tasty pork and apple. The beef as nicely flavorful, tender and cooked perfectly rare with warm center. It isn’t as marbled as the Texas beef that we see plenty of, but was a good beef fix. We ordered a side of spinach not knowing it came with salad (which had a moderately sweet dressing that I liked better than my husband), but the spinach was quite nice. The palate cleanser put me off being of passion fruit but I was wrong on that one – it was good and got me nicely ready for dessert.
