I didn't see a post on this newish place from the Esin folks, so I thought I'd post about a rather pleasant meal I had there early Saturday evening. The space that was The Crown (English pub) has been converted to a sleek, modern and comfortable space. It was not too crowded when we were there so the noise level was fine, but we walked by it at around 9:00 and the place was packed and I bet noisy.
We had several cocktails that were all well prepared. They have a few wines on tap that are offered by the carafe, had a good Qupe Grenache. We ate:
Grilled baby octopus - my least favorite. A little too chewy and not much flavor without the dipping sauce.
Lobster sliders - served on split brioche (?) so very lobster roll like.
Lamb slider - Very good, but the meat was spicy and the menu did not mention that... my five year old was surprised!
Spinach tagliatelle with braised rabbit - excellent
Cassoulet - not very seasonal, but a tasty not traditional version
I'll definitely return when looking for a meal in the area.
