Really Good Deal: Trummer's on Main

I just had dinner here on Sunday night and found out they have a three course special for $38 and many of the wines by the glass are $5.

The dishes are amazingly composed, and the food here is really well thought out and balanced. I enjoyed all the dishes I had. It is a real steal for the price. So if you can make it out I would highly recommend it. It's better than 4/5 of the restaurants on the Restaurant Week list and the price is about the same.

My review from DonRockwell:

Started at the bar- really nice bartender. Hubby had a Main Street with bourbon and cinnamon that was really good, I had a glass of sparkling wine from Barboursville. We tried some of the popcorn at the bar with truffle oil and Parmesan cheese and it was really good. The burgers down there look fantastic will have to go back for that. But they normally don't serve their bar menu on Sunday night. I had $5 glasses of Norton from Clifton that was fruity, but nice with all the rich flavors I had.

I started with the mussels and curried quinoa that was nicely balanced and very refreshing as it had a nice hint of lemon and a balsamic reduction. I tried Hubby's Mulligatawny soup and really enjoyed it as well, lots of celery and lime flavor in the broth. For an entree I had the lamb brisket which also was really good. The cut is fatty, so if you don't like fat you wouldn't like this dish, but it tasted delicious and was served with simple vegetables, sauteed in some butter. I ended with a cheese course as I wasn't feeling it for sweets, and that was nicely presented with some nuts, honey and fig bread. There were three samplings a wisonsin cows milk gouda, wisconsin cows milk cheese similar to a brie, but a little more flavor then a soft sheeps cheese that I forget the origin of. I also have to note that I love their breads here. Hubby woofed down all of his dessert and didn't even offer me a taste so it must have been good. Then they brought out 4 lemongrass truffles to end the meal.

The Sunday deal is a really good deal for some really nicely made and presented food. And stellar service. And the drive from Arlington on a Sunday night isn't bad at all, completely worth it for this gem.
