Being CraftBAR we opted for some of their specialty drinks. I ordered something that sounded really interesting involving jalapeno. I'm still failing to describe the taste. Burnt gym socks perhaps? Not good. But I figured, hey, I ordered the weird drink, so down the hatch and order something new. Next, a star anise drink caught my eye. In theory, the strong licorice flavor should shine overpower any other weird flavors. Wrong. Somehow far worse than the first, this time in a scary industrial chemical flavor way. The Mr's drinks were OK as he opted for more basic cocktails.
Let's move on to the food, shall we?
|Pecorino Risotto Balls|
|Skate Wing, Kale & Chickpea|
|Veal Ricotta Meatballs with Spaghetti|
The service was sub-par and at the end of the meal the hostess got uncomfortably pushy about dessert. Perhaps we held this restaurant up to a higher bar than others, but personally, I think Tom would not be proud of the experience we had.
