Wise Acres is a great addition to Tangletown

Had dinner at Wise Acres Eatery on Friday night, and it was great. They haven't changed the old Liberty Frozen Custard Space too much, so it still has that converted gas station look. Food was lovely. I had the Wise Acres Salad and a bowl of their soup of the day, which was a vegetable soup with a dollop of smoky creme fraiche. Soup was excellent. Salad was good--very fresh, but simple. My husband had the Royal Brie and Bacon burger. I had a bite, and it was tasty. The skinny farm fries that came with the burger were good too, and the wild rice slaw was unique and delicious. Got the grilled cheese for my little son, and it had a delicious whole grain mustard in it.

We were too full for dessert, but we're interested to try the custard next time to see if it is as good as Liberty's was (I heard they inherited the machine). Also got takeout deli sandwiches for lunch on Saturday, and the ham and cheese was delicious--served on a flakey croissant, and the egg salad was top-notch.

Welcome to the neighborhood, and kudos to the Tangletown Garden owners for bringing us this delight.
