Nab and I stopping in Sunday for a quick bite to eat.

We shared the duck confit with seared sea scallops appetizer. I think it was like $10. Include a somewhat generous portion of duck and about 3 scallops over a bed of creamed corn. I thought the corn tasted straight out of a can, too sweet. The duck confit tasted salty, almost pork-like, and was good but could have benefited from a better bbq sauce (what was that, KC masterpiece?) The scallops were the highlight.

While I realize that the sandwiches are their supposed strength, I couldn't resist the chipotle meatloaf with garlic mashed, gravy and roasted red onions. The meat loaf was the most loaf-like thing I think I've ever seen - it looked like sliced Spam. It tasted mildly better. I admit, I am spoiled because I make a most excellent meatloaf, the recipe for which was used for years and years at my parent's homecooking restaurant in Georgia. But I digress. The potatoes were typical mashed potatoes, nothing to write home about (could not taste the garlic). The gravy - tasted like your usual gravy in a bag, the powdered kind Sysco sells by the case. The red onions, thankfully, helped add flavor to the dish. I can't wait to compare this to the loaf at Silvertone. $11 I think.

Nab had the special sandwich, ended yesterday I think. The Campbell. Flank steak, lots of cilantro, good mild spice, quite tasty. He'll have to elaborate.

In the future, I'll stick to the sandwiches, if I return. Pricey for the food quality. Service was quite good and server knew his beers.
