BYO'd: Chappellet Cabernet Sauvignon
Corkage Fee: $2.50/person
BYO Buzz: Cute place - off the beaten path of Butler Street (still reminiscent of prior place, River Moon Cafe). Good food, nice mix of choices on the menu. Great value!
Atmosphere: Cozy,probably seats around 40 people max. They really took the kaleidoscope theme and ran with it in the decor
Service: Service was good, slower, but she was taking care of the entire place!
In typical BYO-ing fashion, we split all of the below
first course - Kaleidoscope Salad
Spinach, avocado, tomatoes, roasted corn and everyone's favorite - bacon (cooked to the perfect doneness - in a's opinion). Served with their homemade citrus-cilantro dressing. We both thought it was a great match. The only complaint is that there wasn't enough avocado....maybe a seasonal thing???
second course - fried gnocchi with marinara
Does this sounds as exciting to as it did to us?
Lightly fried, amazing sauce, a perfect mix of salty and sweet. Like little pasta pillows, very fluffy! AND served with cute little "gnocchi forks".
main - "The Cow Jumped Over the Blue Moon Pasta"
dessert - lemon tart with berry drizzle
tart...you ain't kiddin'
From A's dad's collection, very nice, not too bold Cab. medium on the dry scale, if you like fruitier reds, this would not be for you. Less sweet, which went well with our selections
