Liquid Art House
I looked at the menu at Liquid Art House, with all its foodie-stimulating words, and I wanted it. So, I made a reservation.
They also decorate the place with street art, much or all of which can be purchased - along with food and drink menus they also give you a menu of all the mostly $3-5K art pieces around the super cool building.
|Even the restroom stalls are artsy.|
Worried about the dress code, which is pronounced "smart casual" various places on the web, I finally just called them and asked, and a delightful young lady told me some people dress up but others wear shorts or anything they want. She told me they just want us to feel comfortable and to enjoy our night. Now that's what I like to hear. Cool.
They came around and offered three types of bread. I tried the LAH bread this time, which was just a sweet roll (not hot out of the oven); there was also an oatmeal stout roll and some other slice.
Rohan Duck Confit - $17 - With medjool dates, urfa aioli, rocket, and queso azul de valdeon: This was truly good, my favorite dish of the night. Blue cheese, dates, duck confit and that fatty jam-ish dressing situation, whatever that was, damn.
Notice how most of the glowing reviews for this place are from food bloggers who were invited to pre-opening events, for many of whom the most important aspect of a restaurant is how cool the pictures you can take there are. You'll like this place if you don't care about spending lots of money, if you're into fun "cool" ambiances as your priority uno, if you don't mind super hovery waiters and like eight silver wear changes, and if you're more into reading a menu than eating truly delicious food. I'd rather go to Russell House or Hungry Mother or Myers + Chang and pay half the price for food that's at least as good without all the bull shit.
