Bread & Butter - 2+

J's comment > butter was incredibly fluffy and creamy; unsalted but despite so, totally forgiven because of how tasty it was; bread was also fab; almost on the dense side, but fluffy enough to match the butter it came with

Mushroom tart w aged cheddar & pesto - 2+

J's comment > lovely tart crisp, remained flaky despite the moist mushrooms on top; the inherent moisture in the mushrooms was dealt with before serving on the tart, leaving only the concentrated essence of mushroom and texture behind; well done

Chocolate chip cookies - 3

J's comment > best chocolate chip cookies in town; had been, is now, and hopefully will always be; an almost shortbread-like density, but really fluffy and soft in the centre, w the loveliest crisp on the outside, and melty chocolate chips that just ooze.... drool...

Touch of Evil: Sombra Mexcal, Cazadores Tequila Reposado, Carpano Antica, Maraschino, Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters - 2+

J's comment > incredibly smooth; a surprisingly good pairing w the cookies above, the sugar in the cookies detracts the bitterness away from this drink.
