Herbs and Rye

Posted on | February 6, 2010 | 3 Comments

Having just opened a couple of months ago, I expected to walk into a fresh, modern restaurant. Well, the interior is nothing like what I expected. Not that I don’t like it, though. It’s somewhat of a homage to ‘old school Vegas’, with a dimly lit, lush interior, and the songs of crooners in the background. Kind of funky and fun! Apparently the restaurant is already well known for it’s mixology; having quite an interesting variety of drinks from various eras. The waiter told us they’re getting ready to feature live entertainment; I’m assuming (and hoping) something jazzy, bluesy, or crooner-ish, to fit with the atmosphere.

While we shared one (very strong!) drink, we were here to try the food. As of right now, they’ve got quite a good deal going on, featuring both early and late happy hours with all food on the menu at half off!

Here’s what we had:

For an appetizer, we decided to try the sausage bombs. These are basically sausage egg rolls; filled with ground sausage, onion, mushroom, and accompanied with a basil aioli. The rolls were really tasty; in fact, I think they were my favorite item of the night. The basil aioli was unsurprisingly much like a pesto sauce, but a nice accompaniment.

Adam went with the lasagna, which is huge! I opted for the gnocchi bolognese, which was more than I could eat as well. The gnocchi were good, and the chianti meat sauce was quite tender, with a nice sweetness to it.

While I don’t think the food was the best Italian in town, it was good, and at half off, quite a great deal. We were here on a Saturday night, and the service was fantastic; although there weren’t too many other customers at the time. I’d certainly be willing to try them again in a few months, once they’ve had a bit more time to perfect the menu items. Hopefully they’ll still have that happy hour deal!

    There’s been a LOT of talk about this place lately… But it seems like the buzz has mostly been about the bar menu and the cocktails. Still, I’ll have to grab a couple drinks here some time and try the food just so I can taste for myself what this place is really about.

    I ate there Friday night and the place was packed at 6:30 there were no seats available at the bar so we ate in the lounge. We had a three apps ( Caprice salad, sausage bombes , and the spicy mussles ) they were all excellent. For dinner we ordered the Pork tenderloins with figs and gargonzola cheese aswell as the mushroom panzerroti they were outsatanding. I realy hope this place does good. The happy hour are great.

    Our server told us that the restaurant has been packed on weeknights… the afterwork crowd, I’m assuming. Hopefully things will pick up for them on the weekends as well.
