We received a gift certificate for GRUB and decided to have a quiet Saturday night dinner. We arrived shortly after opening time to avoid the rush. It was an enjoyable meal. Looks like about 32 seats total.
Decor is Main Chic and do take time to analyze the wallpaper themes ... initially looks retro then looks more, well, just look and decide for yourself!
Best tables? For 2, 4, or 6, ask for the window area. Second best area is the table for 4 located under the menu board. Otherwise it can be close quarters with other diners, literally elbow to elbow.
Menu is at the table and on the wall - small but varied and intriguing. Take your time to really look at the complex mix of flavors.
We started with a simple green salad and the bread/dip plate, which was generous in size and flavor. Good indicators for the rest of the meal.
Mains were a difficult choice due to so many good offerings. We had curried lamb rack and quinoa salad, with a great Moroccan flavor, and pork with sweet potatoes, braised cabbage and local blueberry sauce. Wow!
Dessert is not to be missed. We had a lemon tart brulee and Stilton creme with cherries. Yes, blue cheese dessert, and for anyone who is unsure, we say DO NOT pass this one up. It was an "inspiring" plate and we will return to GRUB just to have that again.
Coffee was top quality, decent wine selection and next time we may indulge in a punch bowl - just like Grandma's punch. Enjoy!
