Daily Special Sweet Corn Risotto Corn Cakes with a Roasted Fennel and Tomato Salad
Two beautiful risotto corn cakes, about the diameter of a typical coffee mug. Absolutely love the risotto corn cakes – 2 is not enough! Dense on the inside, perfectly crisp on the outside. Wish they are larger in size. Vegetables include large, fresh chunks of tomatoes, artichokes, and herbs. The size of the chunks overwhelms the dish a bit. The vegetables make up the majority of the plate, rather than the risotto corn cakes.
Grilled Fish Tacos
Three tacos, includes coleslaw, salsa verde, pico de gallo, crema and lime for $13, added guacamole for an additional $1.50. Again, very fresh tomatoes used in the pico de gallo, mildly spicy. Salsa verde is quite spicy. Fish is just a sliver, but tasty. Seems like more of an appetizer than an entree, but that’s just my opinion on tacos in general. Also, with so many dipping options and only 3 fish tacos, I felt conflicted.
Daily Special – Chicken Fried Steak with Mushroom Gravy, Corn on the Cob, and Sweet Potato Hash
Includes corn on the cob (half), mushrooms in a creamy gravy, chopped carrots, and green onions. Chicken fried steak was nice and tender.
This place is easy to miss. It’s right on the corner, but it doesn’t look impressive from the outside. There’s a gravel parking lot adjacent to the restaurant, but it’s small so might need to park on the street because it fills up quick. They have both indoor and outdoor seating available, but I came here when it was raining, so I sat indoors. I wasn’t impressed at all by the interior because it appeared smaller and more hipster than I expected, but their colorful plating is much better than their venue presentation. I was mostly disappointed by the portions of the dishes, but the taste wasn’t bad. It would be nice if the main item of each dish was better represented on the dish — it should be the star of the dish, rather than shadowed over by the sides/vegetables. Staff is okay, though a couple of the staff seemed more concerned with chatting with each other than serving the needs of customers.
