More Pennsylvania Dutch than Arizona desert, the restaurant has stark wooden tables and chairs, a wood burning oven and a laid back bar. Friendly servers don typical hipster garb - think skinny jeans and a henley variation.
Dinner was early so we were able to take advantage of the happy hour special of $1 off all appetizers. Burrata was $5. Let me repeat, $5. Not $20 like it is at Tutto Il Giorno in Southampton, and this is better. Creamy salty perfection with homemade bread lightly doused with olive oil and parsley. An absolute steal.
I chose a pulled chicken chili with jalapeños for my main course. The waiter suggested au gratin potatoes and declared them the best he's ever had. I won't go that far though they were a kind of cheesy yummy. The chili was on the basic side: chunks of chicken, veggies and jalapeños - they could have done more with it.
Other dinner options range from sandwiches to baked pastas. All simple, all reasonably priced. My chicken chili was $12.50, lasagna comes in at $9.
They have a reasonable wine list and a large craft beer selection. The chocolate tart for dessert was decadent and delicious.
Why cook if you can come here? I'm not the only who agrees - the line was out the door when we left.
Add this to your list.
Until our next Burger,
