The drink had a carefully controlled intensity - equally sweet and bitter, with a bit of citrus to cut through both. It also came with a great sugar rim and a dark maraschino cherry on a stick.
As a starter, I had one of the best 'simple' egg dishes I've ever had: Schaner Farm's Organic Chicken Egg ($13) toasted cauliflower, mustard sabayon - a perfectly cooked (63 degree?) poached egg sat atop cauliflower that tasted and looked like bacon bits, with a light - almost imperceptible - kick from mustard sabayon. The egg was liquid gold - I love a good runny egg like I love oysters - both such pure foods, untouched inside, beautiful by nature. And I love breakfast foods for dinner - so this one was perfect for me. Also loved that this dish made me see cauliflower in a whole different light.
After taking off the $50 from the Bloomspot deal, PLUS $20 OpenTable gift certificate (both courtesy of Designer!) and 30% off from making the reservation through Savored - we hardly had to pay anything at all!
But of course we tipped on the pre-discounted amount - our server was simply fantastic. He told us about the Wednesday AYCE fried chicken dinner (but it was only that week before the holidays - call for other specials) and Sunday Family Style Suppers, where you not only get 4-5 courses for $39 per person - you also get bottomless house wine with your meal! Without the group buy deals these would be the best options for foodies on a budget.
All in all, a great meal in a lovely spot that feels like home - if home came with an executive chef who blew your mind, plate after plate.
Will definitely find our way back to Eva soon!!!
