Totally Baked

Today was the grand opening, and it was crazy and harried, as expected. The line moved quickly, and although it was a solid 8-10 minute wait for my food, it was worth it because it was the perfect temperature and did not use the microwave.

The menu is loaded with amazing-sounding combinations from your standard Broccoli and Cheddar to Pulled Pernil Pork and Mexican Slaw to the extravagant Truffle (with truffle compound butter, truffle oil, truffle salt, and fresh truffle shavings) for 55 measly dollars.

We ordered the Braised Brisket with parsley and marsala reduction and the Creamed Spinach with manchego and frizzled leeks. The former was spectacular, as the potato soaked up the sauce perfectly. The latter was a great blend, perhaps some of the best "creamed" spinach I've ever had, and was the manchego was perfectly accented by the savory frizzled leeks. The potatoes, themselves, were cooked perfectly with a lot of flavor and served with a small (but a little too dry) side salad in eco-friendly and smart cardboard packaging. The owner gave us a little sweet potato gelato for dessert, which was not too sweet but had nice flavor.

They're open until 6PM, although the owner says they may extend hours soon. Their website doesn't seem to be up yet, so I have a full review and link to the menu here:
