BYO'd: Robert Biale Vineyard Zinfandel
(From A's parents' collection) *see blog post "Wine Shopping!"
Corkage Fee: $5 total for wine bottle"
BYO Buzz": Good food, decent price
Atmosphere: Homey--makes sense since it looks like a house turned into a restaurant. We were seated in the lovely front "bay window" area. Was light and bright, nice view of Craig street.
Service: AttentiveThey were like service spies. I always had what I needed, but never remembered getting it. Maybe it was magic? Or maybe I was so into the conversation.
SURPRISE!!!!! Dipping sauce Whoo hooo! (Doesn't take much to impress us)
If we had to guess our take on the flavors from back to front:
1. Brown Sauce - sweet, then a little spicy... something in there reminded A of a breakfast food, not syrup, maybe cinnamon? Was voted favorite sauce by both.
2. White Sauce - Something pureed, perhaps cauliflower? very fresh, maybe a hint of garlic?
3. Green Sauce - also very fresh tasting, pesto? A little basil? didnt matter, we ate it all.
Chicken Korma (A) Right--
Light tasting, not too spicy or sweet, perfect for some Indian comfort food on a gross rainy night (wait - isnt that every night in Pittsburgh lately??) Green beans on the side were also a nice addition - sweet but subtle (curry?) flavor to them.
Chicken Tikka Masala (L) Left-
-Green peppers with chicken in a tomato cream sauce.The sauce was so great I could have eaten just that along with my side of rice. Chicken was just a protein plus.
(A's note: I second the sauce, i think i could have drank it! perfect blend of tomato and other flavors... need it bottled up as a soup!)
