Vinotecca?-- Fool me thrice, then shame on me. Royal Oak [DTW]

VTB | May 8, 201508:16 PM

I've long been critical of the promises unkept at Bastone. These professional food service investors also have an adjacent offshoot named Vinotecca, which shares the same crappy kitchen. I went there recently for a Happy Hour glass of wine. Good, and very nicely priced. No clowns elbowing me for space, either. Getting bored, I perused the half off Happy Hour menu:

A) Steak bruchetta with potobello, heirloom tomato, fresh mozzarella and rosemary walnut oil - $5.
B) “Gourmet” beef sliders (2) with herbed goat cheese and house cured pancetta, plus “belgian style” frites - $4
C) Braised beef cheek empanadas with vegetable slaw - $6.50

Pretty tempting. But, based on past experiences (granted, from long ago) I resisted. Anybody actually try this place and find that it now is improved and genuinely good?
