Has anyone else tried it yet? I went for the first time this weekend. Good service, fun wine list, and I really enjoyed the food, but it seemed expensive for what it was. I don't have a huge appetite which is one of the reasons I love small plates menus, but a number of these plates were reeeeeally small. Overall I'm happy about the recent Rose Avenue renaissance, even though it means I have to find a new route home from work because of all the increased traffic on Rose between Lincoln and Main.

Dishes we had:

chorizo & ricotta meatballs with pickled jalapeno salsa verde:
Very good, but only 2 golfball-sized meatballs for $12

heirloom tomatoes, miso blue cheese dressing, sesame seeds & spicy greens;
charred watermelon, burrata, candied olives & pickled garlic vinaigrette:
Liked the flavors of both of these, but probably wouldn't order again at $15 a piece for a handful of cubes of food

gnocchi, burrata, braised broccoli necks, vincotto & hazelnut bread crumbs:
The favorite of the night - amazing soft gnocchi contrasted with the crunchy crumb-coated broccoli

Also ordered but not tried by me since i don't eat seafood:

scallops alla plancha, watermelon curry, padron peppers & watercress:
Another favorite

creste de gallo, sweet corn, shrimp, shellfish butter & old bay bread crumbs:
The least favorite of the group - sauce was unpleasantly fishy I'm told

spaghetti nero, sea urchin, squid putanesca:
Too spicy for a couple people but the others loved it
