Review - Suite G in Fremont

Naes | Oct 22, 2003 07:10 PM

Since I work in Fremont, I was interested to see a new dining option become available that wasn't Thai or Mexican. I have twice had the opportunity to eat lunch at Suite G and was not disappointed with either meal. On both occasions, I was one of only two groups of customers, so it was rather easy for the staff to be attentive. They were also very personable and friendly - what I'd expect for a "bar food" venue. However, Suite G attempts and succeeds in exceeding your normal expectations of bar food. My first experience was with their Prosciutto Panini with the delicious Sweet Potato Fries served with Jalapeno tartar sauce. I was a little apprehensive when I saw how thickly they cut the Prosciutto, which usually renders it tough and unpalatable. However the meat was tender and, though just a little on the salty side, had a wonderful flavor. It was different than most other proscuitto I have experienced. I even had to go so far as to send a question back to the kitchen to make sure that I was, in fact, eating prosciutto. Whether it was prosciutto or not, to me it didn't matter... it was good! The sandwich came with provolone cheese, roasted red peppers, Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, and garlic aioli, all on a sourdough baguette. The sweet potato fries were crisp and not at all greasy and the jalapeno tartar sauce was a great compliment. My second lunch at Suite G was the Grilled Chicken and Peppers sandwich and was just as enjoyable.

Overall the menu is on the small side, but priced reasonably. The majority of the items have an Asian influence, but they did manage to slide a little Italian in with their Prawns Linguine. Dinner looks very similar to the lunch menu with two sandwiches being replaced with a Tamarind Beef dish and Seaweed-Panko Crusted Ahi Tuna. The most expensive item on the menu is the Ahi Tuna at $14.95, but if I make it back for dinner, then I'm definitely ordering it - I want to try the wasabi yam cake that comes with.

I give Suite G a thumbs up and do intend to work my way through some of the other items on the menu. It's nice to see bar food that isn't "bar food".

Suite G is located on 35th/Leary near Tost and Railey's. They are open from 11:30a to 2:00a daily and offer both lunch and dinner. I am in no way connected to the restaurant, its owners, or staff. I was able to provide such detailed information because they were nice enough to give me a menu to use in the writing of this review.
