MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

From the team behind hit restaurants, Rose’s Luxury and Pineapple and Pearls, arrives this much-beloved "little pearl. " Its youthful ambience and carriage house setting, which dates back to the Civil War, makes a nice contrast. Inside, it's charming and modern, featuring an atrium-like glass ceiling, pale yellow-painted walls, as well as a bright and expansive patio. By day, this is a sweet and sunny café; come nighttime, the wine begins to flow and the tiny tables overflow with dishes laid out like a hazy culinary dream. Chef Aaron Silverman’s cooking style turns classics on their head in the most inventive ways. To wit, his clever and delicious Angel Eggs highlights deviled egg dupes that employ savory meringue as faux egg whites and are piped with egg yolk comprised of mayonnaise and flakes of sea salt. Fancy tater tots then arrive as perfectly fried squares of golden potatoes, topped with a dot of cod roe hollandaise and chives; while marinated and grilled pineapple sambal-chicken wings delight both sweet and savory fiends. The tasting menu is a steal at $45 for eight courses; and the playfully eclectic wine list makes for a great read and is absolutely worth adding on a pairing.
