My foodie friend Cat and I hit this bar for a catch-up after I came back from Orange. This small bar had always looked cool to me but for some reason it took me this long to try it out. We ordered some Italian red and a few dishes to share.
The house antipasto board comes with Italian truffle salami, Galloni Gran Reserva 30 month aged prosciutto, wagyu bresaola, sun-dried tomatoes, fior di latte bocconcini, grilled sourdough & grissini. Good combo, although I felt like there was too much bread served even though they knew one of us was not eating any.

Next came the game board with duck liver paté w/ Grand Marnier jelly, rabbit rillette, potato crisps, berry glaze, cornichons & croutons. I was really looking forward to this board, but somehow it didn’t meet my expectations. Maybe I was expecting too much.

I really enjoyed the mussels, which were cooked in white wine, butter, capers, preserved lemon & cherry tomatoes, w/ side grilled sourdough.
I’m not a big whisky drinker but FYI this place carries a few specialty ones from Tassie.
