Fare; Fairmount Area, across from Prison

Sure was lively in the nabe last night. Read reviews of this new site, and tried it last night
with two others. They were into sharing: 2 entrees and one salad for the 3 of us, but when
it came to sharing one dessert I put my put down and insisted we would share no less than
2 desserts.

Good thing. The fresh peach cobbler was the best dessert I've had eating out in a long time,
and I only wished I had it all to myself instead of sharing. Flourless chocolate cake was also
good, but not as unusual. They feature locally sourced food here; we shared avocado crabcake
entree and Merguez sausages with grilled veggies. Vegetables were outstanding; watermelon/yellow beet/feta cheese salad hit the spot also. (Local avocados and sausages? hmm.)

All the outdoor tables were filled; young crowd, but plenty of seniors also. Hopping bar.
So nice to have interesting new places to eat in Fairmount. French Press Decaf; one eccentricity: no artificial sugar, only coconut infused raw sugar? Next time we bring our own...
