Would definitely bring visitors from overseas and friends.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love meat or just goodIf you love meat or just good food, this is the place you should check out. Tucked in the corner of NW 17th and Thurman, but the food is tasty and vibe is urban hip.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ordered the Spanish BoardWe ordered the Spanish Board & fell in love with the Spanish ham, fresh chorizo, and Majorerra cheese. Of course the Charcuterie was amazing; it's what they do, but you would be remissed if you didn't try an entree. The roast pork loin with crispy potatoes, cornichons and mustard sauce was excellent.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & great service.Great food & great service. We will definitely be going back!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThough many of the tablesThough many of the tables are communal, we sat at a table for two. The restaurant is small and the beautiful meat counter and cooking area are visible from most tables. We were there early so it was not noisy but I would imagine, with all of the hard surfaces, when they are really busy, it could get very noisy. Our server was very knowledgeable, checking on cocktail ingredients for us and even bringing us a taste of the components. Dinner was wonderful. Each item on the Spanish board was delicious--with 4 different meats, a cheese almonds and roasted peppers and most generous. Butter lettuce salad was beautiful, fresh and lightly but flavorfully dressed. Mussels were perfectly prepared in a rich and flavorful broth. A great evening.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI grew up in an Italian deli,I grew up in an Italian deli, this place was a trip down memory lane (or flavors more like it). We ordered the "Whole Pig board", a board of Idiazabal (Spanish sheep cheese). As a side we had "Mixed Greens" (fines herbes, shallot, aged goat cheese, red wine vinaigrette). Everything was delish.
I was impressed by their wine selection. The mixed drinks looked interesting as well.
For dessert we had the "Chocolate Ménage a Trois" (A nut brittle, a flour less dark chocolate cake and my favorite a white chocolate custard with crushed cocoa nibs on top). The custard had nutmeg and other spices and it was super velvety. I accompanied it with a glass of Kopke Colheita Port 1989 (tasted like walnuts). Will definitely go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest bratwurst in town~This was our third visit within a few months span, and the food and service have been outstanding each visit. We are from Cincinnati (aka. Porkopolis), and have been out here about 2 years. We hadn't found a bratwurst that came close to a Cincy variety until we ate here. Yummy! A definite rival! All the sausages we've tried here have been great. We'll be back, no doubt!!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
