I have been searching for a venue for an upscale Sunday luncheon and decided to check out the food at Chakra despite some negative reviews. I had seen the space a few years ago and thought it was amazing so thought I should revisit and give the food a try. They offer an extensive $26 menu option from 5-7 and 4 of us sampled a variety of the menu options. I must say, we were very pleasantly surprised! The meal started off with a basket of warm delicious bread (really really good) and then we shared a butternut squash soup ( a real standout) goat cheese salad, and a vegetable sping roll. In addition, we ordered a salmon and avacado tartar off the regular menu. It was presented beautifully and delicious as well. For the main course, we sampled a house made pasta ( with mushrooms in cream sauce) and boneless short ribs over polenta. The were both terrific. We tried both dessert offerings, a vanilla bean creme brulee and warm chocolate lava cake and our plates were licked clean! Our waitress was sweet and efficient and we could not have been happier with the service. Needless to say, I am very excited about finding a gorgeous space with great food for my luncheon and thought I should post because i really think Chakra deserves a visit. Great space, good food, a good price-fixe value and $6 glasses of wine......
