RW--Elephant Walk--REALLY GOOD

SeaSide Tomato | Aug 15, 2008 09:26 AM

Eight of us went to Elephant Walk in Porter Square last night for a birthday celebration. Most of us selected from the RW menu-it's posted on the RW website (sorry--I have no idea how to link on CH)--and the regular menu was available as well. They had no trouble combining the 3 or 4 course folks with those ordering from the regular menu whatsoever.

RW menu was a terrific menu with great options. You could choose a three or four course meal and they had special wines reccommended to match, available by the glass or bottle.

I started with he Belle de Brillet (sp)sidecar (tasty, a bit sweet and that was OK. I love pear.) Since I followed this with the Hendricks Heaven Martini--also good!--I can't rightly remember what all 8 of us had. :) I can tell you we each to a person loved it and I know for sure what I had:

Avocado soup (this was not creamy, as I imagined it would be) It was delicious, both tangy and a bit hot with lovely avocado--just terrific.

Followed by the St Louiis ribs--really good

I had their half game hen--also another stand out.

And yes, I will admit I went for the four courses and had the chocolate--deep, dense, delicious.

We shared a bit and I liked everything I tried--including hte other dessert, a passion fruit sorbet.

We all had wines. I had the Gruner vetliner which seems to be everywhere lately. MAde me want to run out and stock up on some for home--nice match to all the Asian flavors.

All in all, I loved it. Service could not have been more warm avnd friendly.

If I could afford the calories, I would do this all over again. I definitely recoomend it to all for RW!
