Another stop on my list that I have been meaning to check off. This place is pretty good. They have Miner Brewery beer to go along with a large variety of wines. Our food was a trio spread of goat cheese, mushroom, and olive tapenade with bread. The goat cheese and olive tapenade were pretty awesome together. The middle picture is a baked potato and a mushroom pizza. The last picture was part of their charcuterie bar. Some gin and tonic sausage, irish cheese, and pickled vegetables.
I talked to the waiter and they switch up their menu for the seasons so I can’t wait to see what they have on their next.
This was also our meal before going and seeing Alton Brown Live. That show was pretty entertaining. I hadn’t been to the Washington Pavillion to see a show before and it was a great experience.

So I have mixed feelings about this place. The food was just okay. I was expecting this amazing grilled cheese, but since they were busy, mine was kind of luke warm. The mac and cheese was standard fare I guess. I will have to give them another shot, but really underwhelming on the first trip.
