Stopped by Eli’s Kitchen in Warren for lunch. It is a comfortable space, nicely laid out with four tables along one wall, a common table for 8/10, and two window banquettes. The ambience is enhanced by soft lighting, “tin ceilings,” eclectic art work on walls.
I chose one of the daily sandwich specials, Tasso ham, romaine lettuce, summer tomato, bread/butter pickles, honey mustard. The spiciness of the Tasso ham and the crunch of the pickles added up to a terrific sandwich. Kacey’s buttery shortbread cookies with a hint of rosemary were a perfect way to finish the meal. Everything was well prepared and delicious!
