Tim Lipman's new venture on Donald Ross at Military (Donald Ross Village) has been open for about 6 weeks now. He is the former head chef of Leftovers Cafe, my favorite resto. It is a farm to table concept and the menu is kind of interesting. Chicken and waffles, cinnamon chipotle rubbed duck, rock shrimp udon, pork shoulder, lamb sausage, a sirloin, and a few daily specials make up most of the entrees. It is kind of a small place with an open kitchen and has been packing them in on weekends.

We have tried the rock shrimp app (breaded and fried) and the crab cake appetizers. The crab cake app is a great starter but I wish the rock shrimp wasn't fried. The first week they were open, I tried the tandoori wahoo special but it was over cooked. Being the first weekend, I didn't hold it against them and wrote it off. Next visit I had the tandoori cobia and it was perfect. The tandoori wasn't overpowering like I thought and both were served over greens. I hear that the flatbread pizza app and brisket burgers are very good. The bread pudding dessert was just ok.

The portions for most all plates I have seen are somewhat on the small side. The prices aren't high but I just wished the portions were a bit bigger. I want to work my way around his menu to get a better sampling.
