Sat at the bar at Slanted Door last week and had a great meal, as usual. Good thing I got there just after 5. Dinner service starts at 5:30, but before that you can have appetizers. By 5:30 no seats were left, and I am sure it stayed that way. Started with the Spring Rolls, and left half because I decided by that point I wanted to make it to dinner. They were wonderful--plump fresh shrimp and veggies with a thai-peanut dipping sauce. Bartender was great about giving me tastes of various wines to go with each course--a benefit of sitting at the bar, and why I love this place. My entree, Shaking Beef, could not have been better. Cubes of filet expertly cooked, slightly crisp on the outside and the prettiest shade of pink inside with a wonderful, slightly sweet taste. Ordered a side of the White Corn which was also good, but of course, too much food for one person (I ordered a half order of the veggie, which was still too much). The hardest thing about this place is choosing what to order because everything is too good, so make sure you go with a group and have everyone order something different!
