This adorable restaurant is located at the corner of Liberty and Bull. Offering outdoor seating upstairs and downstairs (fun view!), as well as indoor table and bar seating, the small but cozy feel is perfect for just about any occasion. We’ve enjoyed dinner inside, a ladies’ lunch up top, and a late night celebration at the tables on the side walk.

There are tons of fun menu and drink items, too! For starters, we’ve highly enjoyed the Cheese Board. It offers a selection of cheeses, fruit, compote, crustini, and nuts, giving a group of people a chance at a nibble of everything. The Bruschetta is also really great. Though if you have more than 3 – 4 people, you’ll want to order two of them to make sure everyone gets a piece.

So far, there has been very little to complain about on the menu. Highlights include the Rastaman (a jerk chicken sandwich with the most amazing pineapple salsa and avocado), the Pita (a simple yet tasty vegetarian option with hummus and cucumber yogurt), and the Stuffed Portobello Mushroom entrée (spinach, cream cheese, roasted tomato, and more deliciousness!).  

The only sad factor is that the sandwiches are no longer available during the evening dining hours. The risotto was decent and the shrimp and grits was a little sour tasting, and both left me longing for more off of the sandwich menu.

 
The menu features a LOT of fun cocktails to spruce things up, though. The one that tops my list is the St. Germain Cocktail. It is a blend of elderflower liqueur, champagne, and soda. It has everything I have ever wanted in a specialty drink. Basically it is everything that the champagne drinks should be (and ridiculously better than the ones at Spare Time).

 

Other good choices? The Georgia Peach, Pimm’s Cup, and Apple Jack Martini. Fun to try? Jalapeno Lime Spritzer. Though a word to the wise…. They do not come out the same every time you visit. It really and truly varies by the bartender on whether the drink is possible to finish. We’ve had tasty versions, and one that was so spicy it took a mixture of other drinks at the table poured in to make it drinkable.

 

Word to the wise? Choose the chips over the pasta salad. The chips are amazing and the pasta salad is really bland, sadly.

 

Top Shelf: Rastaman

No joke. That pineapple salsa MAKES this dish. I’m not even that much of a fan of jerk chicken but I enjoyed every single bite. Wash it down with the St. Germain Cocktail. You won’t be disappointed by either.
