They might be more well known for their breakfast and brunch, but don’t overlook them for dinner. None of the appetizers disappointed. Steak tartare ($17) might be old news to some, but I still crave a good dose of raw beef and their version topped with arugula is excellent. The calamari ($12) with lemon caper mayo, chili flakes and olives was crispy and delicious. The beet tartare ($12) was a thing of beauty with its sweet diced beets stacked and held together by goat cheese and topped with lavash and arugula.

For entrees, the fried chicken ($15) was plenty to fill me up despite being on the list of “petite” dishes. With one tender, two drum sticks, and one wing it was a great rendition of a classic. Crispy, herbaceous, well seasoned. The fries were good too. The beef bourgnignon ($17), on the other hand, was only ok. Tender and savory, but the one note flavor of the dish was less than stellar.

They’ve got a kid’s menu too — one of the reasons I brought my family here. Portions sizes are huge and should be shared. Both the butter pasta and fish and chips were hits with the little ones in our group.
