|This was a nice bread basket with great variety, not that you should be filling up on bread here. It would've been awesome if these had been served warm though.|

|Terrine (18) - This was one of the better terrines I've had.|
|The burger we came for ($19)|
A custom blend of 8 ounces of New England grass-fed beef (bone marrow and suet plus various cuts), with dehydrated miso, Shelburne Farm cheddar, lettuce and onions tossed in "burger vinaigrette" (the burger's drippings), sliced tomato (when in season), and housemade mace ketchup on a housemade milk-style bun - Thanks Eater!We got these very thick potato wedges, but I know sometimes you'll get shoestring fries. They were actually quite crispy outside for potato wedges, and of course they were soft inside. I liked the little onion stuff on top. I'd have preferred thinner fries, but if it's this or shoestring, then this was perhaps the better option. The salad on the side was salty and very dressed. I just read that it's meant to be more optional topping for the burger, and if you're going to eat it, you should eat it on the burger because it's too salty and dressed for a side salad. I guess I should've done more research prior to eating here, but then again I shouldn't have to study before eating a burger to get it right.

The dessert menu is fabulous looking. Try to save room.
Conclusion: I'm on the fence. I still want to like this place and thus want to give the food one more chance, though my girlfriend has declared it a dud already. I don't think she understands her own brain's influence on her. I think that once they told us we had to move to the bar side to get the burger, it was all over for her and CoM. She just wasn't going to like their food much after being made to feel like a second class patron.
