RFD - Still working out some kinks

Recently checked out Regional Food and Drink on a Saturday nite, and it was full and noisy, and actually serving their full menu in addition to their sandwich menu. The beer is good and plentiful (i especially like the belgian beer selections), but service was slow and harried. The menu has some interesting items, and we tried the trout and pork entrees as well as the brew burger and the beef carbonnade. the trout ($16) was served with shrimp and scallops on a huge platter and was probably the best deal. the pork chop was overly seared. the brew burger had a lot of meat but better burgers could be had elsewhere for $10. the beef carbonnade was ok - the ale sauce was good but the beef wasn't tender, and it needed (alot) more salt. the carbonnade was served with belgian fries, but the fries, though crispy, looked like the frozen shoestring kind and weren't served hot. plus no mayonaisse was served with the fries- had to ask for it. maybe the food and service is better when it's less busy, but i'd go back only for the beers and eat at one of the cheaper, consistent places in chinatown instead. two beers and an entree with tax/tip, $40. not worth it in my opinion.
