|Our first visit: Brie Tart, Steak Frites, Seared Scallops and French Onion Soup|
We loved our experience so much, but a ridiculously busy holiday kept me from posting about it. So when Mrs. P, E1 and I were searching for a pre-theater meal before taking in a show earlier this month, I was quick to suggest it as our destination.
A vibrant, modern and elegant dining room welcomed us just after the friendly hostess. We made our way to our seats eager to order.
|Short Rib Pierogies, $10|
It was a girls night for the ages, so we celebrated with style. Mrs. P ordered a Lady Martha and couldn't stop raving. Made with vodka, muddled grapes, sours, soda water and bitters, this cocktail had a kick and a bite with a lady's finesse. E1 and I stuck with a glass of house red.
|Lady Martha, $10|
|House Salad with Sherry-Shallot Vinaigrette, $4|
|Beet & Crispy Goat Cheese Salad, $6|
|Chef's special Filet Mingnon, $30|
|Seared Scallops with fork-mashed fingerling potatoes & pea puree, $26|

But the delicious and innovative upscale food they deliver is only half the story.
