Little Next Door

The husband and I spent our Valentine's Day walking to restaurants in our neighborhood for a bite. Breakfast at Doughboys, lunch at Joan's on Third, then picked up dinner to bring home at Little Next Door. Every single item we purchased at Little Next Door was delicious, including polenta with specks of marguez, grated cheese on top and a tomato based sauce. Polenta is in the shape of the Little Door cat logo. A wild mushroom chausson was earthy and tasty, with a perfect crust. The goat cheese tart was my husband's favorite, with a light flavor and a flaky crust. We also got one order of beef - six or seven thin slices of tender beef with a creamy dill sauce on the side. For dessert we had three of the tiny macaron's, pistachio, chocolate and strawberry. All were lovely but the pistachio was a real standout. This was our first visit to Little Next Door since its opening and we were very pleased. Am wondering about Little Next Door's consistency. Anyone else have an experience to share at this place?

By the way, lunch was so nuts at Joan's, it felt like a packed tour bus had stopped for lunch. The line was out the door. They really need to get rid of those barrells on the floor at the cash registers and in front of the food cases.
