6 Degrees

Went to 6 Degrees last night on the late side, arriving around 9:45 for some bites and to see what the restaurant is all about. Our waiter was very sweet, but he also seemed to be new to waiting and while he delivered our food when it was ready, he seemed to get a bit lost in a restaurant that had about 6 tables and was fairly dead.

We had the tuna salad which had sweet potato straws, navel orange slices, avocado, and arugula. the seasoning was fine, if a bit underwhelming. the tuna was delicious especially when paired with an orange and the arugula. finished the plate

we got the broccoli rabe that came sauteed with proscuitto...asked for the pros. on the side as my dining partner doesn't eat pork. good thing. the rabe was cooked well and a bit under salted but beautiful and clean and green. the proscuitoo was boiled before put on a side plate and pretty much inedible.

we had the mini burgers which are sirloin. cooked to perfection with a bit of aioli and ketchup, lettuce, and red onion.

we also shared a stuffed portobello mushroom that included pine nuts, cheese, red pepper and some other veggies... pretty plain jane with a balsamic glaze.
the green goddess deep-fried avocado didn't do too much for me. they comped it as they only had a half serving left when we ordered. it pairs well with the house made aioli but i wouldn't order it again.

the drink list is great. we had a pomegranite mojito which was sweet, acidic, and well-balanced. also the le sage was a great and unusual combo. it had mango rum, coconut rum, and other liquors in it. the wine list by the glass looks nice and we really enjoyed our experience there.

I would reccomend it as I think service can and will always improve after a restaurant opens. the food is great, and will also be fine-tuned...and the atmosphere is beautiful. low lighting, sconces i loved.
