Casual yet Great Food & Great HappyAndrei's is a great place. I was expecting more of a fancy atmosphere, but it has a more casual feel which is a nice surprise. It reminds me of a hotel restaurant/lounge. But the food is excellent! I love how they offer wine flights and little bites of desserts. The wines by the glass are nicely priced as is their happy hour menu. I love the elderflower champagne drink, chicken kabobs, fish tacos, goat cheese stuffed chicken and the creme brûlée desserts. And it is a non-profit restaurant - so you are eating and drinking for a

We started with the vegetable arancini. They were very small compared to what a arancini should be, maybe half the size of a normal one. It was tasty, but should be larger. But, I was a little disappointed with the braised short rib. It was my favorite dish, but just wasn't as tender and mouth-watering as the first time I had it. Also, the mashed potatoes weren't garlicky enough. Two people in our party ordered the burger which sounded really good on the menu, but expected the patty to be hand-formed versus pre-formed. It was good, but could have been better. The Kennebec fries were as awesome as always. The Mahi Mahi market fish was beautiful presentation with a hefty serving of fish. It was succulent and tasty.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining experienceExcellent dining experience plus it's not for profit, all profits go to charities! How can you beat that!
On my next business trip to SoCal I will plan on dining there again.
