Truth be told, had I stopped at the carrot/ginger juice I would have left there a happy girl, but I didn't and gladly so.

|It was a goodly amount of tuna. I took what was left home.|
The menu changes daily in accordance with what is available locally. Love that. The left over menus are then cut up to make coasters. Love that, too.
I also had dessert, the fire roasted coconut milk doughnut. YESSS, it was very tasty. It is made in their wood burning pizza oven. It is dusted with a roasted almond, sugar, salt "dirt" to enhance the sweetness of the doughnut. Served with two large beautiful strawberries.
The executive chef is German Mosquera. This restaurant is his brain child.
On the walls are large paintings. I couldn't stop looking at them. They are celebrity oriented, normally not my cup of tea, but there is something so very appealing about these paintings. Bold, honest, beautiful. The painter is Wayne McDonald. His studio is in the Heights. My camera didn't do the paintings justice, but you can get an idea. I was told that he paints with his fingers and toothpicks. Amazing. They are worth a look.
