I'm surprised no one has beat me to a review of this place. This restaurant/bar sits in an alley off of Main St. in Brevard (between 64 and the old movie theater), but don't let the location fool you. The interior is very well done in a casual/hip kind of way.

My wife and I made fools of ourselves over the brie appetizer. Topped with a carmel pecan sauce, crisp green apples and crackers, it could easily have served for dessert.

Christine had a "yogurt marinaded curry chicken" that she says was outstanding. It was all she could do not to pick up the bones and start gnawing away. She wouldn't share.

I had a wasabi salmon served over a creamy blue cheese and tabasco sauce. Just the right amount of spice to warm things up without being over powering. It was incredible.

Appetizer, 2 beers and 2 entrees came in at $50. The wine list looked good, but we weren't in the mood. Entrees ran $15-$25, but they had a fairly long sandwich list as well.

Only complaint is the service, which I observed to be an issue limited to our table. We had our 8 month old (never squeeked...) with us and are a young couple. I'm sure the waiter pegged us from the start as water, 2 side salads and a split entree. We weren't offered the specials and when he took out order he said, to quote, "Let's get your dinner order over with". And, when a drink was knocked over, we were handed a towel and left to ourselves. My usual 20%+ tip fell to about 12%.

The food and setting were top notch and we'll give the service a pass this time.
