312 Market Street Olde City
Ambiance - Part Black Box theater part salon, part old Hollywood Club
Bread on the table? - Yes, doughy small wheat squares, served w/ pesto olive oil dipping sauce
What I ate - Prix Fix 4 course meal for $28! Served all evening on Wednesdays and before 6:30pm on Thursdays. The menu changes weekly. Two main choices are offered.
Starter: Lentil soup with bacon.
Thick and hearty. Almost an upscale baked beans and hotdogs
2nd Course: Buttery pan fried scallops w/ small julienne chopped cold asparagus, a tasteful combination
Main Course: Pain seared Sushi grade Tuna (perfect pink center) served with fingerling potatoes and chunks of avocado
Dessert: Miniature banana fritters with chocolate, dark chocolate and carmel sauces decorating the plate. I inhaled them - delicious!
Service- Very good
Bathrooms- Ordinary decor, single, small, clean
Note - The place was a tomb. Only one other couple dining in the whole place. The economy?
