The topics on this place all seem kind of old so starting a new one.

Went for a late lunch yesterday and had (from the brunch menu) one of the best things I've had there: a bowl of Red Flint polenta, topped with Beluga lentils with rapini and fried eggplant, seasoned with Aleppo oil and lovage ($10). In the wrong hands this kind of global fusion vegan cooking can be a nightmare but this was fantastic. Didn't even occur to me it was vegan until I was writing this.

Also split a cheese burger ($15, small salad and fries included), very good, great fries, and a pizza with Hen of the Woods mushrooms, smoked mozzarella, potatoes, and nettle ($20 with optional egg), very good, best pizza I've had there, tasty crust.

That was really too much food for two.

Wine list has improved.
