You never know who you'll run into around there, so I wasn't surprised to see Nycci Nellis and her husband David up on the deck having a cocktail.
Her blog has a few more readers than mine, but I'm not jealous...
Anyhow, on to the restaurant:
Some shabby/sheik stuff, lots of wood, great patio/terrace/deck.
There is a fountain and a nice Chinese Maple in the middle of the patio. It was a very nice day and there were a few families enjoying the food and the weather.
The staff uniforms are jeans and plaid flannel. Interesting choice.
The wine list has a great selection at reasonable prices. They were assembled by Brian of Redwood fame. Nice selection of bubbly!
The food was tasty. I had the biscuits and gravy with poached eggs. The gravy had a hint of smoke and everything was done correctly. The hash browns were a nice touch in that they had some veggies in them other than peppers and onion.All in all, a pleasant experience. Check it out if you have a chance. Tell Eli I sent you.
